Roma push Olsen towards Watford

Watford are said to be in negotiations for Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen, as the Giallorossi want to make sure it’s an obligation to buy.

According to Sportitalia, the scenario being discussed is a loan with option to buy, which would become an obligation if Watford are promoted to the Premier League.

It remains to be seen whether Olsen would accept a drop down to the Championship.

The Sweden international has also been linked with Spanish side Celta Vigo.

Celta Vigo close on Murillo

Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad are interested in Sampdoria defender Jeison Murillo, with the latest offer worth €11m.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the two Spanish clubs are challenging for the Colombia international.

Samp are eager to sell too, as the €1.4m per season salary is something of a weight on their finances.

Celta Vigo remain the favourites, with a proposal to take Murillo on loan with obligation to buy for a total of €11m.

This is just below the €14m asking price, but potentially enough to do a deal.

Bringing balance to Napoli

Diego Demme and Stanislav Lobotka should bring much-needed balance to the Napoli midfield, explains Vilizar Yakimov.

If someone says that they know what’s been going on at Napoli during the last couple of months, you’d probably be smart not to trust them. The way some of the players switched off was truly astonishing and whether this was because of Aurelio De Laurentiis’ ritiro attempt or something else, it matters little now.

The President tried to pick up the pieces by replacing the surprisingly neutral Carlo Ancelotti with Gennaro Gattuso, but even the hot-headed 2006 World Cup winner hasn’t managed to get into his players’ heads yet.
