Gerald Sagoe, the agent of Pape Diop, suggested that Napoli was pursuing the young midfielder and that he would be more than happy to join the Scudetto champions. He gave an interview to Radio CRC (via Virgilio).
“I can’t completely confirm their interest, but it wouldn’t surprise me he has an important future ahead of him. There have been contracts with big English clubs too. I think he could be the right player to deputize Stanislav Lobotka.”
“We have to wait because the transfer market is moving slowly. A few teams are keen. We’ll see whether Napoli will move seriously to buy him. He has the stature to handle that role. We are in touch. The negotiation is ongoing but still in its early stages.”
The representative stated that Diop would welcome the move to Napoli.
“He’d be absolutely delighted to star for them. It would be a great option for his future.”
On top of Diop, Napoli have been linked to Tottenham’s Giovanni Lo Celso, Udinese’s Lazar Samardzic, and Hertha Berlin’s Lucas Tousart to bolster their midfield. However, the caliber and number of possible additions hinge on the future of Piotr Zielinski, which hangs in the balance amid the interest from multiple sides and tumultuous extension talks.
