Napoli and Juventus are suddenly fighting it out for Sassuolo winger Matteo Politano, who is valued at over €20m.
The Partenopei made no secret of their interest, especially after Simone Verdi refused to leave Bologna in the January transfer window.
Politano begged the club to be released for a mid-season move and over the last 24 hours it seems as if Sassuolo are prepared to listen to offers.
Napoli have proposed €16m plus the loan of Adam Ounas, although there could also be some bonuses included as part of the package.
This evening, reports emerged on Calciomercato.com and elsewhere that Juventus have suddenly dived in to join the fray and make their own bid for Politano.
That’s because Juan Cuadrado’s injury problems are continuing and he could require surgery to correct the recurring pelvic inflammation.
Only one point separates Napoli and Juve at the top of the table, yet they are also now waging war on the transfer market.
