Verdi wants Bologna stay amid Napoli links
Bologna forward Simone Verdi insisted he was staying at the club amid links to Serie A leaders Napoli.
Verdi, 25, has enjoyed an impressive campaign for Bologna, scoring six goals and assisting five others in 20 league games.
The two-time Italy international joined Bologna in mid-2016 and, despite being linked to Napoli, Verdi wants to stay at the club.
"I feel obliged to continue this season with a club that believed in me as a player and as a man," he wrote on Twitter.
"It would have been disrespectful to let everything go."
