Napoli in for Empoli starlet?

Napoli are allegedly prepared to make a move for Empoli’s 18-year-old midfielder Samuele Ricci.

The youngster has played 21 times in Serie B this term and after the impressive campaigns of Ismael Bennacer at Milan and Hamed Traore at Sassuolo, the clubs are lining up to deal with Empoli patron Fabrizio Corsi.

Journalis Nicolò Schira claims the next in line for a move to Serie A could be Ricci, who has been linked with big clubs in recent months.

The journalist claims the Partenopei are in pole position and are prepared to offer an opportunity to the starlet who came through the academy of the Tuscan.

The centre-midfielder has a contract expiring in June 2022 but could leave Empoli, who currently sit ninth in Serie B, this summer.
