Napoli close in on Chievo starlet

Napoli are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Chievo starlet Sofian Kiyine.

According to CalcioNapoli24, negotiations are at an advanced stage and only one more meeting is needed to finalise the transfer.

The website explains Kiyine is ‘enthusiastic’ about making the move and that it will be confirmed in the ‘last few days’ of January.

The 21-year-old would then join Napoli on a permanent basis, before returning to Chievo on loan for the rest of the season.

Kiyine has played 14 times for the Yellow Submarine this term and has six caps for Morocco’s Under-20 team, although he is still eligible to play for Belgium.

Capable of playing through the middle or on the left, he spent the 2017-18 campaign down south with the Partenopei’s neighbours Salernitana.
