The player introduced by the media as a replacement for Kim Min-jae is Scalvin. Scalvini, who currently plays for Atalanta, is a young centre-back born in 2003 and has a good physical condition of 194cm. Even though he made his professional debut in 2021, Scalvini, whose skills were recognized early, is one of the players considered the future of Italian defense, such as being called up to the Italian national team from last year.
Another advantage is that he has good ball handling skills like Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae drives the ball directly in Napoli and goes up to the attacking area, or tries an accurate long pass toward his teammates who penetrate into the space behind or on the side of the opponent. Scalvini also handles the ball comfortably because of his good feet, and has no hesitation in sending long passes forward. However, as a young player who is now in his third year as a professional, he has to accept his lack of experience.
‘Spagio Napoli’ explained that Napoli could recruit Scalvini to replace Kim Min-jae, but to do so, it would require a large transfer fee as well as winning the recruitment competition. The media said, “Scalvini would have been caught on Giuntoli’s radar. However, in order for Napoli to sign Scalvini, they must win competition with other clubs, including Inter Milan, and persuade Aurelio De Laurentiis to pay the transfer fee.” Scalvini’s ransom is around 30 million euros (approximately 43.9 billion won) based on ‘Transfer Markt’,” he said, listing the conditions necessary for Napoli to recruit Scalvini.
