In a startling turn of events, Napoli’s CEO, Aurelio De Laurentiis, faced interrogation by prosecutors in Rome today over allegations of false accounting in the transfer of striker Victor Osimhen from Lille.

The investigation centers on accusations that Napoli artificially inflated the value of players involved in the deal to meet the transfer fee.

This development has sent shockwaves through the football world, casting a shadow of doubt over the integrity of the transfer process.

According to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, De Laurentiis, accompanied by his lawyer Fabio Fulgeri, underwent questioning at the Rome prosecutor’s office.

The scrutiny extends beyond De Laurentiis to encompass the entire Napoli board, with investigations widening to include the club’s top executives.

This controversy has plunged Napoli into a maelstrom of uncertainty, prompting intense scrutiny and raising serious questions about the transparency and integrity of the club’s transfer dealings.
