The season that Hirving Lozano was having before his injury made him one of Napoli's best players, but he could now be forced to leave the Italian side. The economic situation at Napoli is not the best, and top management is already considering some scenarios without Chucky in the team.
As reported by renowned Italian journalist Paolo Bargiggia on Radio 1, Aurelio De Laurentiis is aware that Napoli will need to let go of some of its best players at the end of the season in order to alleviate the club's financial crisis caused by the coronavirus. In this regard, Lozano is one of the first options.
"I would not discard a farewell to Hirving Lozano, who is doing better and can bring economic benefits, or even (Lorenzo) Insigne, although releasing the captain is more complex," explained Bargiggia, implying that Chucky has everything in favor of leaving Napoli, and this as a result of the great level shown in the current Serie A.
With a salary of 5.4 million euros per year, Lozano's permanence in the Neapolitan team is subject to many other factors, such as Napoli qualifying for European competition. With their recent elimination from the Europa League, Gennaro Gattuso's men have cut off a fundamental source of income that will have consequences for the institution in the short term.
Scorer of 13 goals since the start of the season, Hirving Lozano is enjoying an incredible boom in Serie A, where Gattuso had managed to get the best out of him before the injury.
