Napoli’s negotiations for Leonardo Pavoletti are picking up, as his chances of joining the Partenopei are increasing.
Sky Italia is reporting that the Neapolitans could close a deal with Genoa for €18 million plus bonuses. Napoli’s interest in West Ham’s Simone Zaza is also a factor in the possible transfer, according to Calciomercato.
The fate of current striker Manolo Gabbiadini is in question as well, as Everton in the Premier League has interest in the player.
With Milik’s crushing injury leaving him out of action long-term, Napoli is looking for a number 9 to fill his role.
Pavoletti himself has struggled with injuries this year but has been hailed by many members of the Genoa brass to be the club’s best player.
