Marko Rog is reportedly close to a €20m move to Eintracht Frankfurt, which would free up Napoli to purchase Eljif Elmas from Fenerbahce.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Croatia international midfielder Rog is on the verge of a transfer to German club Eintracht for approximately €20m, including bonuses.
Today, the Partenopei also agreed a deal with Parma to loan striker Roberto Inglese, with obligation to buy, for a total of €20m plus €2m in bonuses.
This influx of cash can then be used to snap up Macedonian midfielder Elmas from Fenerbahce for €16m plus add-ons.
The bid for James Rodriguez remains complicated, though, as Napoli do not intend to give Real Madrid any guarantees on a permanent transfer.
They want to sign the Colombia international on loan with option to buy, whereas Atletico Madrid are happy to pay the €42m upfront.
