Napoli in for Aleix Vidal?

Napoli have enquired about Barcelona right-back Aleix Vidal, reports suggest, with the defender also a target for Liverpool and Sevilla.

The Partenopei have been looking to strengthen at full-back, as though Faouzi Ghoulam is back in training after a cruciate ligament injury they lack depth in that area.

Elseid Hysaj is the first choice right-back, but his backup is 35-year-old Christian Maggio.

According to CalcioNapoli24, sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has spoken with both Barça and the player over a possible move.

The website believes that Sevilla have offered a free loan with an obligation to buy of €8m, but that has been rejected by the Blaugrana.

Vidal would prefer to stay in Spain, but is also aware of the interest from Napoli, who are willing to offer more for him.

English media sources have also linked Liverpool with a move, as Nathaniel Clyne is out with a back injury.
