Boca: 'Napoli best Almendra bid'

Boca Juniors confirm “several clubs are interested in Agustin Almendra, but Napoli made the most concrete proposal. He’ll probably leave.”

The 19-year-old central midfielder has been on Napoli’s radar for over a year and negotiations seem to be progressing well.

“We have several clubs interested in Almendra, but Napoli made the most concrete proposal we’ve received so far,” Boca Juniors President Daniel Angelici told Radio La Red.

“We are analysing the offers, but it’s very likely he’ll probably leave.”

It is reported to be a deal worth in the region of €25m.

Almendra has played 19 competitive games for Boca this season, contributing one goal and one assist.

He also has five caps for Argentina at Under-20 level.

Barcelona, Inter and Valencia had also been linked with a swoop for Almendra in January.
