The Chase Heats Up For Ezequiel Lavezzi
One of Argentina’s brightest footballing talents, currently playing in Serie A for Napoli could be on the move to top European sides such as Chelsea, Liverpool or even Juventus according to reports. The 24 year old has been in blistering form once again this season, and has taken Serie A by storm. His form for Napoli has been recognized, and a move is on the cards for him in order to fulfill his true potential. The talented player can not only play upfront, but also as an attacking midfielder or on the wings. One of his most effective positions is cutting inside as a left sided attacking midfielder, where one normally expects him to create something.
The reported transfer price for the forward is around £20 Million, however his talent is undeniable. He has slotted in to the Serie A league with ease, however, with the slightly more physical aspect of the Premiership, critics may suggest he is too lightweight and it will be hard for him to adjust to the league. Thoughts of the 2010 World Cup will also be buzzing around his mind this summer, and his hopes of getting a call up into Maradona’s Argentina squad. A stay at Napoli this summer could be the safe option with regards to being selected, however a move to a top European side could encourage Maradona to involve him. Conversely, it could affect his chances in a negative manner, if he fails to adjust to a new club.
Overall, Napoli have an outstanding young player on their hands, someone capable of achieving greatness and they will certainly want to get the best price possible of him if forced to let him go.
