Juventus reportedly met Christian Kouame’s representatives, but the Genoa striker is still expected to join Napoli.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici held talks with Kouame’s camp in Milan on Wednesday, in an apparent effort to hijack Napoli’s deal.
However, despite reports of concern on the Partenopei’s part, the newspaper describes the Old Lady’s interest as ‘mere distraction’ .
Furthermore, negotiations with Napoli would be ‘proceeding calmly’ and a transfer is scheduled for this summer, with the 20-year-old in line to earn ‘more than €1m a season’.
