The January transfer window hasn’t even started yet, and Napoli seem to be on top of their business already. There have been numerous contacts in the past days between Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis and Andre Gomes’ agent Jorge Mendes.
The extremely talented central midfielder has caught the eyes of many top teams around Europe. Barcelona being one of the many teams interested in the young Portuguese’s signature. However, Napoli in the past few days have been making movements on Gomes. With Corriere Dello Sport reporting that De Laurentiis has had a phone call with Gomes’ agent Jorge Mendes. Napoli are supposedly very serious in gaining more information on the player and seeking a deal with Valencia.
Napoli were reportedly in the running for young PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot. Despite their interest, PSG turned down any possibility of a deal being met with the Partenopei. Therefore, Napoli look to La Liga for their largely sought after midfielder they so desperately need. Although Hamsik, Jorginho and Allan have been bossing the center of the park for most of the season so far, they still lack depth in the position despite having Valdifiori and Lopez to rely upon. The two have been lackluster to say the least so far this season, and the three starting midfielders need rest every once in a while, so the idea of Andre Gomes to Napoli is not a bad one. It can greatly benefit the squad in their bid for a third scudetto crown.
