Ancelotti wants Areola

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is Napoli’s main target, reports suggest, as he’s been specifically requested by Carlo Ancelotti.

The Partenopei need a number number 1, as Pepe Reina is leaving to join Milan on a free transfer.

Mattia Perin has already joined Juventus, while it has been confirmed in the last two days that Rui Patricio and Bernd Leno have signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal respectively.

While those three names have previously been the subject of interest, Sky Italia is reporting tonight that the favourite is Areola.

Ancelotti has made it clear that the Frenchman is the man he wants, and there could be talks at the European Club Association meeting tomorrow.

PSG are on the verge of signing Gianluigi Buffon, and Areola won’t want to play backup to the Juventus legend.

The Ligue 1 champions are asking for around €35m, but agent Mino Raiola is working to lower that fee.
