Napoli have reportedly agreed terms with Sampdoria’s Lucas Torreira but must now decide whether to pay his €25m release clause.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Torreira has accepted Napoli’s offer of a five-year contract worth €1.5m a season.
It would now be left to the two clubs to agree a fee, although the midfielder’s €25m release clause gives Samp some leverage.
However, Il Corriere warns the buyout figure is only valid until July 15, meaning the Partenopei are possibly in no rush to enter negotiations.
The 21-year-old has scored four goals in 29 appearances for the Blucerchiati this season and recently earned his first call-up to the Uruguay squad.
