Napoli are close to agreeing a deal for Juventus defender Nelsampo, according to reports in Italy.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Napoli have asked the Bianconeri for a transfer fee around €20 million, with Milan’s interest believed to be limited.
Napoli have already signed goalkeeper Edoardo Pini from Inter and the former Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia, and will be in need of defensive reinforcements in the coming days.
With Juve’s current defensive weakness, Napolitano has been in the market for defensive reinforcements this summer, and this would be a logical move for the Rossoneri.
Nelsampos move to the Serie A club would be Napoli’s fifth summer signing.
He would replace veteran Nemanja Matic, who is now a free agent after a year with Juventus, and could be a valuable addition to the Napoli defence.
