Napoli has added a bit of Mexican flavor to their lineup, and while doing that, they managed to set a franchise record.
Carlo Ancelotti had his desire to hire a new winger satisfied as Napoli sealed the deal to hire the highly-rated Mexican footballer Hirving Lozano. "Chucky" had his first European experience at PSV for the past two years, following his four-year stint at Pachuca, the Mexican side where he made his professional debut.
Lozano scored 40 goals for the Farmers in two seasons, while also handing out 17 assists.
Here's how Napoli unveiled their new player on social media.
Lozano's signing has established a new transfer record for the celeste and white side, as the Italian club paid PSV a bit over $42M for the player's rights.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti labeled his new player as key to the team's title hopes.
"We are very strong. Lozano can play in all of our attacking positions, even as a striker. We are aware of our strengths and how competitive we are, with his signing we will be able to fight for the title," Ancelotti said ahead of the team's Serie A debut.
Lozano is not expected to play in the team's opening match against Fiorentina. The Mexican footballer joins David Ospina, Alex Meret, Kostas Manolas and Elif Elmas as the team's top transfers ahead of the 2019-20 season.
