Valencia step up Albiol chase

Reports are growing that Valencia will make a summer swoop for Napoli defender Raul Albiol.

Spanish and Italian media continue to suggest Albiol will return to his former club next season.

He turns 31 in September and has been one of the weakest links in Maurizio Sarri’s back four this term.

Albiol is under contract with the Partenopei until June 2017 and, according to Sky Sport Italia, has an initial €7m price-tag that can be negotiated down.

Napoli are already looking to the future, securing Lorenzo Tonelli from Empoli for €10m plus bonuses.
