It’s reported Sime Vrsaljko has made it clear he’s willing to move to Napoli, who will offer €20m to Atletico Madrid.
The full-back has been heavily linked with the Partenopei, who need reinforcements after Faouzi Ghoulam’s cruciate ligament injury.
Now Rai journalist Ciro Venerato has told Radio CRC that there has been a telephone conversation between Vrsaljko’s agent, Giuseppe Riso, and Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli.
In it, the agent told the club that his client is very willing to make the move to the San Paolo.
Napoli are willing to offer €20m to Atleti to get the deal done, but they face competition from Roma, with Eusebio Di Francesco having coached Vrsaljko at Sassuolo.
Juventus are also said to be interested, but they wouldn’t make a move until June.
