Allan to PSG sends Barella to Napoli?

Napoli could reportedly sell Allan to PSG for €80m, putting them in pole position to sign Nicolò Barella from Cagliari ahead of Chelsea and Inter.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Paris Saint-Germain Coach Thomas Tuchel is desperate to bring Allan to France, especially after seeing his performances in the two Champions League group stage draws.

The Partenopei would only let him leave for around €80m and that is a price PSG are prepared to pay in the January transfer window.

Conflicting Chelsea-Barella reports

There are conflicting reports between Sky Sport Italia and its UK version on Chelsea’s pursuit of Cagliari midfielder Nicolò Barella.

According to SSI transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio late last night, Maurizio Sarri desperately wants to bring in 21-year-old Italy international Barella, but the club hierarchy isn’t convinced.

Now Arsenal v Napoli for Barella

Chelsea are reportedly resisting Maurizio Sarri’s calls to sign Nicolò Barella, so Arsenal become Napoli’s biggest opposition for the Cagliari talent.

According to Sky Sport Italia and the Corriere dello Sport newspaper, Sarri insists Barella and Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain are the January signings that will vastly improve the team.

However, as confirmed by his comment that he wasn’t even told they’d bought Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund, the club pays relatively little attention to his views.

“We turned down an offer for Nandez, while now a proposal has arrived to pay his release clause, but with a formula that is ridiculous,” Angelici told Radio La Red.
