After starting just five league matches under Maurizio Sarri in his debut season at Napoli, Amadou Diawara has had six starts to his name in the Serie A since Carlo Anceotti took charge at the club.

According to, Wolverhampton Wanderers were interested in securing the midfielder’s services last summer, but the 21-year-old was not keen on joining the Premier League club.

Despite the disappointment before the start of the season, Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have still maintained their interest and would be ready to pay €30m to the Italian side to buy the player ‘outright’ in the winter market.

It is explained that just like last summer, Diawara is not interested in leaving Napoli for Wolves this month.

The Italian website mentions that the most ‘accredited solution’ for the player is to wait until the end of the season and then take a decision on his future.

There’s some insistence in Italy on Wolves interest, and it’s unclear if that’s because it’s true, they do really want the player, or whether the claims are being used to underline Diawara’s commitment to Napoli and push a potential price up.
