Constantly linked with a move for PSV Eindhoven’s Hirving Lozano, Napoli made it clear they are looking for a right winger, and they might have found an alternative for the Mexican.
That man appears to be Gerard Deulofeu, according to CalcioNapoli24, who report as an exclusive that the Italian side have started looking at the Spaniard in more detail.
The website explain the 25-year-old’s great season with Watford has been key in catching the eye of the Serie A club, who now have the ‘intention’ of enquiring about a possible transfer taking him from Vicarage Road to the ‘shadows of the Vesuvius’.
Should Napoli decide to make a move for the Hornets star, CalcioNapoli24 claim his wages would ‘easily fall’ within the financial parameters the club have put in place for next season.
As things stand, all that’s happened are ‘contacts’ between the Italians and Deulofeu’s agent.
Recently linked with Milan, the possibility of a return to Italy, where he enjoyed himself, and the chance of playing in the Champions league could certainly be appealing for the winger.
We’ll just have to wait and see where Watford stand on a potential transfer, and our guess is they’ll be asking for a fair amount.
