Lainer to Napoli imminent

Napoli are ready to sign Stefan Lainer from RB Salzburg this week, while keeping an eye on Fabian Ruiz and Alphonse Areola.

According to Sky Sport Italia, a deal is done for Lainer at a cost of €10m and he is expected in Italy for his medical over the next few days.

The 25-year-old Austrian can play at right-back, on the right side of midfield or even on the right of a trident attack.

This season, he contributed two goals and 11 assists in 55 competitive games for Red Bull Salzburg.

Sky also claim that Carlo Ancelotti has requested Fabian Ruiz from Real Betis and are prepared to pay the €32m release clause.

The 22-year-old midfielder is considered one of the brightest talents emerging from Spain.

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Areola remains one of the hot favourites to replace Pepe Reina.

That’s because today UEFA confirmed they won’t take action against PSG for Financial Fair Play violations, so the club can announce Gigi Buffon’s arrival at any moment.
