Napoli target Ukraine midfielder?

Napoli are reportedly keeping tabs on Racing Genk’s €10m-rated midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Partenopei sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli is an admirer of the 26-year-old and the player’s agent is aware of interest from the Neapolitan club.

The Shakhtar Donetsk youth product joined Genk in 2016 and has scored 30 goals for the Belgian side, as well as providing 32 assists.

His 13 goals from midfield this season have helped his team win the Belgian title, while he was previously linked with Roma.

Fiorentina’s Jordan Veretout, Boca Juniors’ Agustin Almendra and Stade Rennais’ Benjamin Bourigeaud have also been mentioned as possible midfield reinforcements for Napoli.
