The Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli or simply Napoli is currently the best team in Italy. Its young players, the work of its coach and the project set up by the directives of this group have been the keys to living this excellent sporting moment. The 2022-2023 season began with great uncertainties in the Neapolitan squad, the departure of five key players in the transfer market had all its fans very concerned. The departure of footballers like Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens, Fabián Ruiz, Kalidou Koulibaly and David Ospina had left this team adrift.

Despite having a bleak outlook, Luciano Spalletti, coach since the 2021-2022 season, had enough intelligence to make up for these confirmed casualties in the best way. In the summer market, the Italian team was reinforced with young players, who have been the cornerstone of this great team.
The arrival of footballers like Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Kim Min-Jae quickly made the idols who had left the institution this season forgets. Their youth and desire to demonstrate their talent in one of the best leagues in the world has led them to become a fundamental part of this team.
A Stranger from Georgia
Georgia is considered one of the least relevant European countries in the world of soccer. However, before all odds, it has given Napoli one of its best players this season, who has become one of the great promises for the coming seasons in the old continent.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia came to Napoli as an unknown, his professional career had begun in teams little known in his country. After having a short stint in Russian soccer, the 22-year-old winger has been acquired by this Italian team, a squad that has filled him with confidence and has helped him maximize his level.
This season, the Georgian winger has scored 12 goals and has assisted 15 times in 26 games played. With these statistics, the man born in Tbilisi has become one of the best players in his position, with a market value of more than 100 million euros.
As well as boasting a great moment from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Napoli have come across the best moment of striker Victor Osimhen's career. This 24-year-old Nigerian attacker has been listed as one of the best footballers on the African continent today, since with his goals he is close to the Neapolitan team to achieve a new title in Serie A.
This season, the attacker has scored 21 goals in 24 games played, becoming the top scorer in this competition, taking a big difference from all his pursuers. With these outstanding presentations, the young footballer currently has a market value of more than 70 million euros.
Latin American Quota
As if the great moment of these footballers were not enough, it is necessary to highlight the work that the Mexican winger Hirving 'El Chucky' Lozano has been doing. This 27-year-old footballer has gradually been left with a place in the starting eleven of Napoli, a group in which he has shown all his talent on the wings of the pitch.
The one born in Mexico City has been of vital importance to maintain the team's balance. Not only does he generate a great imbalance in the offensive zone, but he also has a great physical display to help in defense. This is why he is currently considered one of the most complete players on his team.
A Streak of 33 Years
With this great season, the Neapolitan team is about to break a 33-year streak without winning a title in the Italian League. On that occasion, the Naples team had been led by the Argentine Diego Armando Maradona, who has gone down in history as one of the greatest idols for this Italian city.
This is why those led by Luciano Spalletti are about to make history in Italian soccer, remembering that the Neapolitan team is considered a relegated team in Italy. Currently, Napoli has 65 points, 18 units more than its top pursuer. With this marked difference, the city of Naples is more excited than ever.
The 2022-2023 season has been a dream for Napoli, this team has only lost one commitment in Serie A and has practically one foot set in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, a competition in which they consider it as a rival to be careful in the final stages of the tournament. Given this, everything indicates that Napoli will seal their season with a flourish, getting their third Scudetto, this being something historic for the whole of the city of Naples.
