Napoli at Vrsaljko loggerheads?

Napoli are reportedly unwilling to meet Atletico Madrid’s €20m asking price for full-back Sime Vrsaljko.

According to Il Mattino, Napoli are only prepared to offer €14m at this point, although there could be scope for add-ons.

Nonetheless, the newspaper notes Vrsaljko’s agent Beppe Riso has already opened talks with Atleti about letting him leave in January.

Furthermore, the Partenopei would have already offered the Croat a salary of €2.8m, which could go up to €3m through bonuses.

The former Sassuolo and Genoa man has emerged as Napoli’s first choice for left-back cover after Faouzi Ghoulam’s ACL injury.
