Lecce-Empoli, imminent market exchange

Market swap coming up on the Lecce-Empoli axis. As reported by Sky Sport, Lecce midfielder Youssef Maleh is about to move to the Tuscan club, while Empoli striker Roberto Piccoli è ready to take the reverse route.

Maleh is expected to land in the Azzurri under the formula of a loan with right of redemption, while as for Piccoli, owned by Atalanta, the formula è that of a dry loan. The two clubs are working to finalize the final details and make the deal official.

Attack totally revolutionized for Lecce, compared to last season: in fact, the Giallorossi sold Colombo and Ceesay and decided to bet on Krstovic and Piccoli, who will play for the very place with the Montenegrin striker.

As for the Tuscans, on the other hand, Maleh represents an excellent alternative in midfield for coach Zanetti, who has pushed for the arrival of the Moroccan midfielder, who can be used both in the midfield and as a trequartista if necessary.
