The situation reached a head this week when Pepe’s agents landed by helicopter in the Napoli pre-season training camp Dimaro.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed he had met them as part of negotiations, while Lille President Gerard Lopez announced the €80m asking price had been met.

Cassano: 'Lukaku money is madness'

Antonio Cassano believes €85m for Romelu Lukaku is “simply madness” and Inter should give Mauro Icardi to Juventus for Gonzalo Higuain.

The former Roma, Milan, Inter and Sampdoria striker was as usual forthright with his views on a variety of subjects when speaking to Sky Sport Italia.

“Inter have got a top player on the bench. Antonio Conte can get them closer to Juventus and genuinely challenge for the Scudetto.

Roma: €30m plus Dzeko for Icardi?

Roma are reportedly hoping to convince Inter with an offer of €30m plus Edin Dzeko for Mauro Icardi.

According to La Repubblica, the path is clear for Roma to make their move as Napoli are focusing on Nicolas Pepe and Juventus have yet to move on any of Mario Mandzukic, Moise Kean and Gonzalo Higuain.

Therefore, the newspaper claims the Giallorossi are prepared to put an offer on the table worth €50m, with Dzeko valued at €20m and having been a Nerazzurri target all summer

Betis interested in Napoli's Milik

Real Betis have confirmed their interest in Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, who could make way for Mauro Icardi or Nicolas Pepe.

Milik was a regular for Napoli last season, but he appears increasingly marginalised by talk of Icardi or Pepe coming to the club.

There could now be a breakthrough for all concerned as Betis’ Vice-President suggests his club are ready to bring in the Pole.

Ancelotti on James and Icardi

Carlo Ancelotti said James Rodriguez and Mauro Icardi would improve his Napoli. “I always had great centre-forwards in my career.”

Negotiations seem to have stalled with Real Madrid for James, as Atletico Madrid are now leading the race, while they battle Juventus for Inter outcast Icardi.

“A player in the James role can certainly help us in our finishing or in through balls for the strikers,” Ancelotti told TV Luna.

Napoli €50m for Icardi rejected?

According to TMW, Napoli made a €50m offer for Juventus target Mauro Icardi, but Inter have decided they’ll sell only for €80m to pay for Romelu Lukaku.

The Nerazzurri have made it clear Icardi is not in their plans and left him out of their pre-season tour of Asia.

It was assumed by many that this treatment would significantly reduce Icardi’s value on the transfer market from €110m down to approximately €60-70m.

Milik to Betis if Napoli get Icardi?

With Napoli pursuing Mauro Icardi and Nicolas Pepe, Real Betis admit they’d be happy to pick up Arkadiusz Milik.

The Partenopei today formally signed Eljif Elmas from Fenerbahce, for a reported €15m plus bonuses, and are now working on their attack.

Icardi is first choice, although the Inter striker seems intent on Juventus, while Napoli face competition for Lille winger Pepe from Manchester United.

If Napoli do bring in a new forward, they are expected to sell Milik, and Real Betis are waiting to take advantage.
