Maxime Gonalons protracted transfer to Napoli could finally happen at some point next week, according to reports.
The Lyon midfielder has been on the Partenopei’s wishlist for a year now, with dozens of stories saying that he was virtually on his way to Stadio San Paolo last summer and in January.
The move though, never materialised. But that could change next week, the Corriere dello Sport reveal.
The 25-year-old finally seems to have put his foot down, and is willing to force the deal through.
The Ligue 1 outfit want €11m for the France international, an amount Aurelio De Laurentiis is seemingly happy to pay.
The paper believes that negotiations will start at some point in the next few days, with a possible outcome decided by the time Italy play England next weekend.
