Napoli track Udinese trio

Napoli are reportedly planning a triple summer swoop for Udinese stars Mauricio Isla, Mehdi Benatia and Kwadwo Asamoah.

The two clubs have done business before and, according to Tuttosport this morning, negotiations are already underway for next season.

President Aurelio De Laurentiis has his sights set on reinforcing Napoli with winger Isla, defender Benatia and midfielder Asamoah.

The most likely to make the transfer to the San Paolo is Moroccan defender Benatia, who would help the Partenopei to strengthen their shaky back line.

The price-tag is expected to be around €12m, although Udinese would like closer to €15m and have interest from other clubs in Italy and England.

Isla is currently out of action until the end of the season with a serious injury, something that could lower the Chilean’s asking price.

However, Napoli face huge competition from the likes of Inter and Arsenal.

The final target is 23-year-old Ghanaian midfielder Asamoah, but again Udinese have set a price-tag of around €15m and also have interest from Milan.
