It’s widely reported Swansea City will buy Federico Fernandez for €10m, so Napoli want Liverpool’s Daniel Agger.
The rumours of Argentina international Fernandez being on the verge of a transfer to Wales emerged earlier today and have been gaining a lot of momentum.
The 25-year-old centre-back is expected to cost €10m (£8m) with a four-year contract that practically doubles his current wage at Napoli.
With so little time before the Champions League play-off against Athletic Bilbao, the Partenopei need to act fast in order to find a replacement.
The hot favourite appears to be Liverpool’s Daniel Agger, who would relish a reunion with Rafa Benitez.
Agger is thought to be on the way out of Anfield after eight years and Napoli provides the perfect destination.
However, President Aurelio De Laurentiis is unconvinced about Agger, feeling his wages are too high for someone who will turn 30 in December.
The other options would be Villarreal’s Mateo Musacchio and Olympiacos defender Kostas Manolas, who is already linked with Juventus and Roma.
