Fulham’s relegation from the Premier League side last season convinced André-Frank Zambo Anguissa get a move away from Craven Cottage in the summer of 2021.
On the deadline day of that window, the Cottagers allowed the midfielder join Napoli on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy of €15m.
The Fulham owned player has made 28 appearances in all competitions this season and his displays have convinced the Serie A side to exercise the buying option in the summer.
This was confirmed by the Naples club’s sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, last month.
As per the agreement between the two clubs, Luciano Spalletti’s side will have to pay €15m to retain the Cameroon international.
Earlier reports suggested that Napoli will try to get a discount from the Championship club.
Il Mattino, however, dismiss this suggestion, and explain ‘a decision has now been definitely taken’ by the Italian club to buy Anguissa by paying the €15m fee to Fulham.
With that, the midfielder will permanently cut ties with the Cottagers, and the new agreement between Anguissa and Napoli will see him sign a contract with them until 2025.
