Napoli have reportedly turned their attention to Benfica’s Alex Grimaldo, as Atletico Madrid won’t sell Sime Vrsaljko in January.
The Partenopei were keen to sign the former Sassuolo full-back, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis revealed yesterday the Spaniards wouldn’t let him leave until the end of the season.
Faouzi Ghoulam is out with a cruciate ligament injury, so the Neapolitans still need reinforcements at full-back and Il Mattino reports they’re ready to offer €20m for Grimaldo.
The 22-year-old has made eight appearances in the Liga Nos so far this season, providing one assist.
