Napoli join Soldado race

Amid links with Gonzalo Higuain and Leandro Damiao, now Valencia’s Robert Soldado is on Napoli’s wish-list.

The Partenopei need a replacement for Edinson Cavani and can reinvest the €63m paid by Paris Saint-Germain.

Although this morning the Corriere dello Sport claimed there was a €35m deal with Real Madrid for Higuain, other sources have doubts over that move.

Internacional’s Damiao is another option, but this afternoon Soldado has emerged as the latest candidate.

The 28-year-old Spain international has been a sensation at Valencia, scoring 30 goals in all competition last season.

“At the moment we have not received any formal offers for our striker, but there are many people who have asked us about his situation. I can’t say much more,” noted Valencia sporting director Braulio Vazquez on Friday.

Soldado has a £25.9m release clause on his contract and has already been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham.
