Napoli begin Deulofeu talks

Napoli have made formal contact with Barcelona to discuss buying Gerard Deulofeu, claim Sky Sport Italia, but the player prefers Inter.

The winger is no longer required at Camp Nou after the Blaugrana spent over €120m on Philippe Coutinho.

Spanish paper Sport suggests Deulofeu favours Inter, but Barcelona are leaning towards Napoli, because they intend to sell rather than loan with option to buy.

Now Sky Sport Italia report that Napoli have made an official approach to begin negotiations with Barça and the price-tag they have been quoted is €15-20m.

Deulofeu has experience in Serie A with a successful six-month loan spell at Milan last term.
