Anzhi intercept Armero-Napoli move

Napoli’s negotiations for Udinese midfielder Pablo Armero appear to have hit a stumbling block with reports of an offer from Anzhi.

The Colombian has been on the verge of completing his transfer to Naples for some time and he was expected to sign on Monday.

According to today’s reports, there are two different issues holding up the move. The first is with regards to clauses over image rights in the contract with Napoli.

The second problem is an offer from Russian club Anzhi, where Armero could join Samuel Eto’o.

“Both clubs offered a contract to the player,” his agent Rolim Carmo was quoted as telling Russian newspaper Izvestia.

“Now the player must evaluate them and decide whether to stay in Italy or go to Russia. Everything will be decided by the end of this week.”
