Agent: Napoli winning Torreira race

Lucas Torreira’s agent has reiterated that Napoli are leading the race to sign the Sampdoria midfielder.

Pablo Bentancur’s remarks come just a day after reports claimed that Napoli had agreed personal terms with Torreira, ahead of the likes of Inter and Atletico Madrid.

“We still have to talk and iron out some details, but yes, I can say that the possibility of him going to Napoli looks good,” he told Radio Crc.

“However, a deal hasn’t been finalised. There’s no agreement: I have to check over everything, including image rights so talks don’t become too drawn-out.

“I can say that Torreira will leave Sampdoria, but as for his value and price, you have to ask his club.”

It also remains to be seen whether the Uruguayan would arrive as a squad player or replacement for Jorginho.
