River Plate center-back Emanuel Mammana has been highly touted ever since the January transfer window. Napoli might just be the team to finally land the Argentinian in the summer.
In January, Fiorentina looked all but set on landing the 20 year old defender. However, after long and tedious negotiations that eventually broke down, Napoli seem to be the team in pole position to land the player’s services, according to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia.
According to Di Marzio, River Plate have set a €12m price tag on Mammana. Napoli seem to be ready to make a substantial offer to River Plate in the coming weeks. They want to lock down the defender before the summer transfer window begins as AC Milan are interested also.
All in all, Emanuel Mammana looks set to make the giant leap to European football this summer.
