Napoli are being linked with a move for a second South American talent in the coming transfer window, Argentina international Claudio Yacob.
After securing 22-year-old Chilean Eduardo Vargas this month, Aurelio De Laurentiis’ club are now being linked with a return for Racing Club midfielder Yacob. As ilsussidiario.net report, the Azzurri were originally tracking the twice-capped Argentine last summer, but nothing came of this initial interest.
However, the Partenopei are thought once again to be considering a move for the midfielder who is being compared to Gokhan Inler for his ability to win possession and initiate passing moves.
One aspect that could trip up any proposed deal comes in the form of the asking price - where Racing are thought keen to push for offers of €8m and above for the 24-year-old, Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon is reportedly only interested in a €6m deal.
