Napoli sign Malcuit from Lille

By Sports Desk August 08, 2018

Napoli have completed the signing of defender Kevin Malcuit from Lille to strengthen Carlo Ancelotti's options on the right ahead of the new Serie A season.

Malcuit, 27, is an established right-back but has also played as a winger during a career that began at Monaco and featured a spell at Saint-Etienne.

After joining Lille in July 2017, Malcuit made 25 appearances as the club struggled last season and finished 17th in Ligue 1 to narrowly escape relegation.

Malcuit will provide competition for Albanian full-back Elseid Hysaj at Napoli while offering Ancelotti the option of cover further forward.
