Napoli secure cut-price Pavoletti?

Napoli will reportedly pay €13m for Genoa striker Leonardo Pavoletti in January – €5m less than what was originally thought.

According to Tuttonapoli, Pavoletti will cost Napoli €13m plus €2m in bonuses, although the latter are reliant on performance and “not easy to activate”.

Furthermore, he will sign a four-and-a-half-year contract worth €1.9m a year, which could be bumped to €2.4m through more bonuses.
