Napoli have reportedly dived in ahead of Milan and Arsenal for RB Salzburg’s Dominik Szoboszlai, setting up a meeting with his representatives.
Milan and Arsenal seemed to be fighting it out to sign Szoboszlai, but Sky Sport Italia claims Napoli are ‘ready’ to pay his €25m release clause.
Furthermore, a meeting has been scheduled between Partenopei officials and the midfielder’s camp later this week.
The Coppa Italia winners’ interest has intensified so much that the broadcaster now consideres them ‘ahead’ in the race for his signature.
He would replace Allan, who continues to be heavily linked with Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.
Ralf Rangnick knows the 19-year-old well, given the incoming Rossoneri chief is currently Red Bull’s head of football.
However, Sky states Zvonimir Boban had agreed a deal for him in January before he was dismissed as Chief Football Officer.
