Prior to the transfer window, there was a feeling Hirving Lozano, who had struggled for form under Gennaro Gattuso, could be on his way out.
The Mexico international, against all odds, managed to turn things around towards the end of the season, to the point where his manager is now happy to rely on him from the off, as demonstrated by his two starts (and two goals) in his first two games.
That didn’t stop a couple of clubs from coming knocking on Aurelio De Laurentiis’ door about his services, however, as Tuttosport report both Paris Saint-Germain and Sheffield United took some interest in signing him.
It wasn’t for a full transfer, the newspaper are keen to point that out, with both clubs seemingly willing to pay €10m for a ‘dry loan’, meaning a temporary deal with no view to buy.
We find it somewhat hard to believe Chris Wilder would have been ready to splash that much of his budget to have one player for just one year, but that’s what Tuttosport are claiming.
Either way, Lozano is staying in Naples, and Sheffield United went on and decided to invest a whole lot more on Rhian Brewster instead.
