Palermo advances with Lapadula’s inspiration

Explain to me briefly the following article:

From being the Palermo’s avenger on more than one occasion to potential heir of Brunori: Lapadula is the new name in attack on De Sanctis’ notebook, that offensive reference point who, for charisma and experience, would give an important contribution in case of the captain’s departure. The Peruvian, after a 2022/23 season as top scorer in Serie B with a fundamental contribution to Cagliari’s promotion, has lost positions in the hierarchy of the Sardinians in the last twelve months also due to some too many injuries: if the situation were to arise again, Lapadula could also decide to relaunch himself in Serie B, and the rosanero, who need (at least) a double-digit goal scorer to aim for the top flight, are already at the window. Pisa, Sampdoria, and Brescia have also set their sights on the Peruvian, currently engaged in the Copa America (debut tomorrow against Chile): despite being 34 years old, the 68 goals scored in Serie B are an excellent calling card for anyone aiming for important goals.

His fate is closely linked to that of Brunori, who continues to have a high number of suitors without any having yet made an offer: the priority remains an adventure in Serie A, but neither Empoli nor Lecce nor Genoa have yet sealed the deal with the rosanero, whom they would like to obtain not less than 6 million euros from his sale. In Serie B, the most concrete interest has come from Sassuolo and Cremonese, but neither has yet reached into their wallets, and regardless Palermo would prefer not to give Brunori to a direct competitor, nor does the player seem particularly enthusiastic about staying in the second division. Progress has been made on Segre’s renewal, which could be officially announced in the coming days: the rosanero have reached an agreement with the player and his agents for an extension of the contract until June 2027.

From the list of possible alternatives in attack, Esposito could soon be ruled out: Empoli has indeed intensified dialogue with Inter and is ready to seal the deal; Mulattieri’s name is still alive, having already worked with Dionisi at Sassuolo, but the neroverdi seem inclined to give him a second chance after a disappointing first season.

Palermo, in avanti c’è la suggestione Lapadula
