“It’s true, Napoli among other clubs called me,” confirmed the agent of Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons.
Representative Frederic Guerra spoke to Le Parisien newspaper this weekend.
“It’s true, Napoli among other clubs called me, but I cannot tell you at this moment whether the player is interested in a move.
“That is only because we haven’t discussed it yet. We will talk things over when he returns from his summer vacation.”
French international Gonalons is one of the transfer targets picked by new Napoli Coach Rafa Benitez.
The 24-year-old midfielder has been at Lyon for four seasons, notching up 35 Ligue 1 games this term with three goals.
