Napoli are reportedly hesitating over Genoa’s €30m asking price for Christian Kouame, allowing Juventus into the race.
This is the striker’s debut Serie A season, he just turned 21 and has contributed three goals with four assists in 19 games for the Grifone.
According to the latest rumours from Sky Sport Italia and others, the haggling over a €30m price-tag is giving Napoli pause for thought.
A deal had seemed to be imminent, but Genoa keep jacking up the cost of the operation and it is causing concern.
Tuttomercatoweb claim the hesitation has promoted Juventus to get back into the race for Kouame, especially as they have been negotiating intensively with Genoa over Cristian Romero and Stefano Sturaro.
