Report: Napoli consider Carrasco

Napoli will reportedly turn to Yannick Carrasco if the proposed Matteo Politano-Fernando Llorente swap doesn’t materialise.

The Partenopei are on the lookout for an additional winger, now that they have reverted to a 4-3-3 formation under Gennaro Gattuso.

Their first choice had been Politano, who is out of favour at Inter, and there had been murmurs of a swap involving veteran striker Llorente - a long-term target for Antonio Conte.

Callejon to reunite with Rafa?

Jose Callejon could be on his way out of Napoli as his former coach Rafa Benitez reportedly wants to bring him to Dalian Yifang in China.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolò Schira, Benitez is tempting Callejon - a player the coach signed for Napoli in 2013 - with an offer of €10m a season.

Callejon set for China reunion

Multiple reports suggest Jose Callejon will leave Napoli in January or the summer for a reunion with Rafa Benitez at Dalian Yifang.

The veteran winger turns 33 in February and his contract with the Partenopei is due to expire in June.

La Repubblica, La Gazzetta dello Sport and others all report Callejon will not extend his current deal and is going to China.

The obvious destination would be Dalian Yifang, where he’d reunite with both former Napoli teammate Marek Hamsik and coach Benitez.

Callejon to join Hamsik in China?

Napoli forward Jose Callejon could reunite with Marek Hamsik and Rafa Benitez at Chinese club Dalian Yifang in January, it is claimed.

However, his contract expires at the end of the season and President Aurelio De Laurentiis has already made it clear that he will not match the winger’s salary demands.
