'Napoli serious interest in Strootman'

“Napoli’s interest in Kevin Strootman is serious and PSV confirmed it to us,” said the Dutch talent’s agent.

Midfielder Strootman had been linked with Milan in the past and is expected to start tonight’s European Under-21 Championship semi-final against Italy.

“Napoli’s interest in Kevin is serious and PSV confirmed this development to us over the last few days,” his representatives told Voetbal International.

“As things stand, the player is totally concentrated on doing well at the European Under-21 Championship for his country.

“Only after that tournament has concluded will he think about his future.”

Strootman is not the only PSV Eindhoven player linked with Napoli, as reports suggest a deal is practically done for winger Dries Mertens.
