Napoli have reportedly agreed terms with Jordan Veretout but are still some distance away from Fiorentina’s €27m asking price.
French media outlet RMC Sport corroborates Il Mattino’s two-week-old claim that a five-year contract has been agreed with Veretout.
However, a stumbling block would be over the fee, with the Partenopei only willing to pay €20m for the 26-year-old as opposed to €27m.
The former France Under-21 international joined the Viola from Aston Villa for €7m in 2017 but recently stated that he was ready for Champions League football.
