Napoli ask Atlanta Utd for Barco

Napoli have reportedly targeted Atlanta United’s 20-year-old Argentine Ezequiel Barco as the ideal Hirving Lozano alternative.

According to Tuttosport, Lozano is becoming so difficult to prise away from PSV Eindhoven for under €50m that they could be forced to look elsewhere.

That search has taken them to MLS for Barco, who only turned 20 in March and contributed four goals with three assists in 12 competitive games this season.

Atlanta United paid €12.3m to bring him in from Independiente in January 2018 and he is under contract until December 31, 2022.

Barco plays primarily on the left wing of a trident attack, but can also take a more central role when needed.
