Giovanni Di Lorenzo's agent addresses Man Utd transfer links and says Italy star will 'consider' offers
GIOVANNI DI LORENZO is open to a potential Manchester United switch, according to a representative of the Italy international.
The Napoli full-back, who was one of the Azzurri’s best performers during their triumphant Euro 2020 run, is reportedly attracting interest from Old Trafford.
Di Lorenzo, 27, was part of the team who beat England in a dramatic final penalty shootout at Wembley.
The versatile right-back, who began his playing career as a striker, made six match-winning appearances for Roberto Mancini’s side during the tournament.
United officials are thought to have been keeping tabs on the Serie A ace for more than a year with the club reportedly making contact with the player’s reps in March 2020.

And Di Lorenzo’s agent Mario Guiffredi hinted a bid for the player – who is reportedly valued at around £17million – could be considered if Old Trafford officials made an offer.
Guiffredi told Radio Marte: “I read about Manchester United but now it is newspaper talk.
"If there were real things, we would be the ones to communicate it to Napoli. At the moment no request has arrived.
"If offers arrive, we are obliged to take them into consideration, also in the interest of Napoli, because it is the president himself who has put everyone on the market.
"So, we feel we are on the market. If an appropriate offer arrives it'll be discussed and considered.
“(President Aurelio) De Laurentiis spoke at the press conference explaining Napoli's losses, and that all his players are transferable and that, if appropriate offers arrive, he will evaluate them himself."
Di Lorenzo joined Napoli, who finished fifth in Serie A last season, in a £7m move from top-flight rivals Empoli in July 2019.
His current contract with the side is set to expire in June 2025.
In 2020 the Red Devils were thought to have been eyeing Di Lorenzo as potential cover for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The defender’s ability to play across the back four is thought to be appealing to the club.
Reports claim United are also interested in a possible swoop for Atletico Madrid and England star Kieran Trippier.
However, the club is thought to have been put off by Atletico’s £20million asking price for the lifelong Man United fan.
