Fulham midfielder Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa was surrounded by transfer rumours for the past few months, with a few clubs from abroad being linked to him.
Some stories said the player would cost up to €25m, and that’s why there was an expectation that the Cottagers could manage to make a big sale with him this summer.
So with Anguissa moving to Napoli on a loan deal, it’s no surprise that the transfer is being seen in Italy as a good piece of business made by the Serie A side.
Some compliments were made today by journalist Ciro Venerato, who, when speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli today, praised sports director Cristiano Giuntoli for landing the 25-year-old that way.
“It was a great coup by Giuntoli, because his home team, Fulham, until a few days ago was asking for €20m to sell the strong Cameroonian midfielder,” said Venerato (via Area Napoli).
“But then no offers arrived and the boy’s agent called Giuntoli and opened the solution proposed by the Neapolitan club”.
Anguissa joined Napoli on a one-year loan, and according to reports, the Italian club will then have the right to buy him for a fee of €15m.
It’s all a matter of proving himself in Serie A first.
