Agent: ‘Vrsaljko thrilled by Napoli’

The agent of Sassuolo full-back Sime Vrsaljko says his client would be ‘thrilled’ to move to Napoli.

The Partenopei have been heavily linked with the Croatian international in recent days, and the player’s representative admits the transfer is an attractive prospect.

“I’ve read about Napoli’s interest, but at the moment I don’t have direct confirmation,” Giuseppe Riso explained, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“To get my client would take a substantial figure, but definitely less than the €20m that would be needed for [Torino’s Matteo] Darmian [another Napoli target].

“I’ve heard a lot about [Napoli sporting director Cristiano] Giuntoli, and he confirmed that Napoli like the player.

“I spoke to the player about Napoli, and of course he’d be thrilled, it’s very big club.”
