Napoli Director Marino Talks Up Brescia Starlet Salamon

Marino was in the stands at the Stadio Rigamonti yesterday to keep tabs on Salamon and press reports suggest the Azzurri could launch a bid for the 17-year-old.

Brescia coach Nedo Sonetti handed Polish midfielder Bartosz Salomon his first start yesterday, as the Rondinelle crushed Pisa 4-0 in a Serie B game.

Napoli director of sport Pierpaolo Marino travelled to the Stadio Rigamonti and his presence has fuelled speculation that the Campani could further enhance their partnership with Brescia after signing Marek Hamsik, Fabiano Santacroce and Daniele Mannini from the Lombardy-based outfit.

“I came here to watch Salamon’s debut,” Marino is quoted as saying in Tuttomercatoweb. “He is a highly-rated 17-year-old, and I will one day be able to say: I was there…”

The Vesuviani are also said to be in the frame to land Brescia rising star Savio Nsereko, who is on the radar of several top European clubs.

“There has been no offer for Savio, he is undeniably a good player, but we have got that role covered,” the ex-Udinese executive claimed.

“However, we do have a strong connection with Brescia which stems from the great friendship between our President [Aurelio] De Laurentiis and their chief [Gino] Corioni.”
