Napoli have decided to send midfielder Luca Cigarini to Sevilla on a season-long loan with the Andalucian side retaining the option to sign him at the end of the 2010-11 campaign, according to the latest reports emanating from Italy.
La Corriere Dello Sport claims that a deal has been struck between Sevilla and Napoli and that it is a loan contract with the Spanish club having the option to sign the Italian on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Moreover, the Italian midfielder's agent, Giovanni Bia, has been quoted by pensieroazzurro.com as saying, "The final say is with Napoli, not me. I can only say that Luca is happy to go and play in Seville. In Napoli, unfortunately there is no place [for him]."
Cigarini is not in Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri's plans for the upcoming season and has been linked with a move to Sevilla since last month.
