Napoli: €100m for Lille duo?

Napoli are reportedly close to agreeing a €100m double deal for Lille defender Gabriel and forward Victor Osimhen.

According to French transfer expert Manu Lonjon, Napoli want to wrap up negotiations as soon as possible, with five-year contracts prepared for the pair.

However, he warns that whereas Gabriel - valued at €30m - is ready to accept their offer, Osimhen - valued at €70m - still needs convincing.

Despite that, Alfredo Pedulla continues to maintain the forward will join the Coppa Italia winners, having agreed personal terms a month ago.

Sky Sport Italia, meanwhile, reports the Nigeria starlet and his representatives are expected in Naples later today for talks with Partenopei officials.

As for Gabriel, Tutto Napoli writes he will be the ‘heir’ to Kalidou Koulibaly, who has been linked with Premier League moves.

The 22-year-old had also attracted interest from Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton, as well as North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
