Napoli have been hot on the heels of Bologna’s Simone Verdi. The Italian winger has had a great season thus far.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia, Napoli have finally agreed a transfer fee for their target, Simone Verdi. Bologna have reportedly accepted a €20million + bonuses deal to take the versatile attacker to the Gulf of Naples.
With that news, all Napoli need to do is convince the player to join the Partenopei mid-season. Di Marzio reports that there will be a decisive meeting between Napoli’s representatives and Simone Verdi on Monday to finally close the deal. This will come after the player comes back to Italy from his vacation in Dubai.
Despite recent developments in the Verdi transfer, Napoli remain interested in Barcelona’s Deulofeu and Sassuolo’s Matteo Politano. However, both would be difficult due to Deulofeu’s unrealistic wage demands and Sassuolo being reluctant to let Politano leave in January.
