Official: Napoli sign €40 million Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano

Serie A giants Napoli have today confirmed the signing of highly-regarded attacker Hirving Lozano from PSV Eindhoven.

PSV standout

24-year-old wide-man Lozano joined Eredivisie outfit PSV from Pachuca in the summer of 2017, since going on to make a lasting impression in the Netherlands.

Despite playing out wide, Lozano, known more commonly as ‘Chucky’, racked up 10 goals and 3 assists in his first 12 appearances in the Dutch top-flight, eventually finishing his debut season in Europe with 19 goals and 11 assists across all competitions.

The fleet-footed attacker of course then proved the star attraction of an impressive Mexico side at last summer’s World Cup:

Lozano often struggled to rediscover his best form this past season, but perfectly showcasing just how gifted the Pachuca youth product truly is was the fact that he nevertheless managed to directly contribute to 33 goals.

Napoli switch

As such, rumours had inevitably begun to mount once again this summer that Lozano was being eyed by some of Europe’s top clubs.

The likes of Manchester United and AS Roma were touted as potential destinations, though one outfit had long remained outright front-runners to actually clinch a deal for the Mexican.

The side in question, meanwhile, were Napoli.

The Partenopei are known to have been on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this summer.

Having failed to strike deals for either James Rodriguez or Nicolas Pepe (who has since joined Arsenal), though, Lozano remained one of few realistic targets for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

And, on the back of weeks of mounting speculation, the 24-year-old’s move to the Stadio San Paolo has today finally been made official.

Lozano has put pen-to-paper on a 5-year deal with Napoli, after a fee worth a rumoured 40 million Euro was agreed upon with PSV:
