Napoli close to Pavard?

Napoli are reportedly close to a deal for VFB Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard.

The 22-year-old was a regular in the France side which won the World Cup last summer, scoring a stunning goal against Argentina in the Last 16.

According to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, the Partenopei are close to a deal for the defender, who can play at both right-back and centre-back.

Stuttgart are struggling near the bottom of the Bundesliga, with 10 defeats from their opening 16 games of the season.
