Napoli: Fornals to replace Hamsik?

Napoli have reportedly reached an agreement with Pablo Fornals’ agent for the Villarreal midfielder to replace Marek Hamsik.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Fornals is Napoli’s first choice to fill the void about to be left by Hamsik, who is on his way to China.

Despite failing to strike a deal with Villarreal last month, the newspaper maintains the Partenopei already have a verbal pact with the Spaniard’s representative for a move this summer.

The 22-year-old has a €30m release clause but his club could be forced to sell him for less, given they are four points adrift of safety in La Liga.
