Napoli are reportedly considering Bordeaux’s Youssouf Sabaly as a reinforcement at full-back.
The Partenopei are looking for a defender who can play on either side of the defence, as Christian Maggio has left and left-back Faouzi Ghoulam struggled with injury last season.
Sabaly, a Senegal teammate of Kalidou Koulibaly’s, played at left-back at the World Cup, but is better known as a right-back in France.
According to Sky Italia contact is underway to bring the defender to Naples, with Girondins asking for around €12m.
That is around the same price as Stefan Lainer, who Red Bull Salzburg have declared is not for sale.
