Hajduk Split have confirmed they are in “very advanced negotiations with Napoli” to sell them teenage midfielder Josip Radosevic.
“We are in very advanced negotiations with Napoli for Radosevic, but have not yet reached a conclusion,” Hajduk President Martin Brbic told Radio Crc.
“The lad wants to play for Napoli and there is not long before we can conclude the deal. There is not a big gap between offer and demand.
“However, there are other clubs who want Radosevic, including Parma.”
