Napoli will reportedly send sporting director Riccardo Bigon out to Albania to watch young Swiss defender Fabian Schar in action.
The Vesuviani are seen as preparing for further work in the transfer window and, after apparently turning up the chance to sign former target Adil Rami, are scouting a younger alternative defender.
Specifically, it is understood that the club will send sporting director Bigon out to watch Albania host Switzerland in World Cup qualifying this Friday, to watch Basel defender Schar in action.
The 21-year-old is seen as a particular favourite of Coach Rafa Benitez’s.
