Ancelotti: 'Pepe and James talks ongoing'

Carlo Ancelotti confirms Napoli are in talks for Nicolas Pepe and James Rodriguez, while denying Arkadiusz Milik would leave if Mauro Icardi arrived.

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.

Pepe agents arrive for Napoli

The representatives of Lille winger Nicolas Pepe have arrived in Dimaro for talks with Napoli over a potential transfer.

James Rodriguez’s agent Jorge Mendes was thought to be landing for negotiations with Napoli.

That forced the Partenopei to issue a strong denial on social media, but it then emerged just as quickly that those landing on the helipad were members of Pepe’s entourage.

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.

Napoli progress for Pepe

Napoli are progressing well in talks with Lille for €80m-rated Nicolas Pepe, offering Adam Ounas and cash, but the player remains unconvinced.

The Partenopei are giving up on James Rodriguez, refusing to pay the €42m outright unless they get him from Atletico Madrid on loan with option to buy.

They’ve turned their focus towards a different type of player, one who can provide plenty of goals and has a high resale value for the future.

Napoli & Inter fight for Pepe

Napoli are reportedly set to offer €55m plus Adam Ounas for Lille forward Nicolas Pepe, but Inter have already bid €80m including bonuses.

According to Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedulla, Napoli’s insistence on a loan deal for James Rodriguez is because they are ready to splash the cash on Pepe.

Pedulla explains the Partenopei have been working on a deal for ‘some time’, even before their interest in James, and have decided to table a bid of €50-55m plus Adam Ounas.
