Various hypotheses for Lorusso, from Empoli to the return to Bari, with Naples in the background


Two and a half seasons in the Napoli youth team, 54 appearances and 17 goals, the record for best scorer of the blue youth team shared with Gianluca Vigliotti. This is the balance of the experience in blue of Francis Lorusso(19), one of the most interesting prospects to emerge from Bari’s fertile youth sector in recent years. And his mark in the only Youth League victory in history, against Union Berlin.

But if Vigliotti has already signed a professional contract, Lorusso is still a long way off. And the spotlight is on the left-footed striker from other clubs who can’t wait to add him to their squad. On one side Empoli and Venezia in Serie A to include him in the Primavera, or Avellino who could gradually reserve a space for him in the first team.

And a return to the origins, the Bari that he left in the winter of 2022 to embrace the Neapolitan dream. The game has just begun.
