According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Napoli could make no new signings this summer, provided their stars Kalidou Koulibaly, Fabian Ruiz and Lorenzo Insigne don’t leave.
The newspaper reports Napoli don’t have a real transfer budget as director Cristiano Giuntoli has been allowed to only sign players on loan.
For this reason, the Partenopei are struggling to sign a full-back or a central midfielder, which are the two main targets for the club in the summer.
Talks with Chelsea for Emerson Palmieri are ongoing, but the Serie A giants have also set their sights on Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge.

However, neither Premier League clubs are open to selling their players on loan so that Napoli may find themselves without any new signing at the end of the summer transfer window.
That scenario, however, would not be too dramatic for coach Luciano Spalletti who has told President De Laurentiis he appreciates the current squad and that he may no need new signings provided their stars don’t leave.
