Napoli move in on Diakite

Napoli will hold talks with the agent of Modibo Diakite this week in an effort to wrap up a summer switch.

The Azzurri are interested in the Lazio stopper who will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old has played in just one game for the Biancocelesti this term after refusing to extend his deal in Rome.

Azzurri sporting director Riccardo Bigon has held a number of telephone conversations with the player’s representative.

Sky Sport Italia now claim that the two parties will meet in person to thrash out terms.
