Gattuso on Ibrahimovic to Napoli rumours: “I want to talk about who I have”

By Oliver Fisher -

Gennaro Gattuso remained coy when asked by reporters whether he will target a move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic after being named the new Napoli boss.

The Rossoneri have seemingly made the Swede their main target for the January transfer window in a bid to add leadership and firepower.

The team currently sits eight points off the European places and has scored just 16 goals in 15 games, meaning the 38-year-old would be a welcome boost to a young squad.

We reported on Tuesday evening that optimism from Milan regarding the signing of Ibrahimovic has grown to the extent that Zvonomir Boban hopes to unveil the striker on Sunday before the game against Sassuolo.

However, Swedish journalist and friend of Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Jennifer Wegerup – then revealed that his mind is far from made up, teasing that he would like to play in Naples to end his career.

Speaking at the press conference where he was unveiled as their head coach, Rino addressed the speculation, and his words were transcribed by Calciomercato).

“I want to talk about who I have. It’s too easy now to talk about Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho. They are incredible players but I talk about who I have,” he said.
