Carrasco to replace Callejon?

Napoli are reportedly looking to bring Dalian Yifang winger Yannick Ferreira Carrasco to the San Paolo as an outright replacement for Jose Callejon.

Calciomercato.com reports that the Partenopei are looking at the possibilities of bringing the 26-year-old back from China.

Carrasco scored 17 times and provided eight assists in the Chinese Super League this term and has appeared to be ready for a return to Europe.

Cristiano Giuntoli was reportedly interested in the former Atletico Madrid winger and had allegedly tried to bring him to Naples before the player chose a move to Asia.

Now, the outlet claims that Callejon could be the key in a proposed transfer between the clubs.

Former Napoli coach Rafael Benitez is the new coach at Dalian Yifang and the report claims that he could be interested in a reunion with the 32-year-old, who’s contract expires in June 2020.

Callejon came to Napoli in the summer of 2013 and has played 325 games for the Azzurri, scoring 79 times in the process.
