Atalanta Want Boatload of Money to Sell Napoli Target

Replacing Kim Min-Jae is the first order of business for Napoli, but they’ll have to spend lavishly to bring in one of their preferred targets, especially Giorgio Scalvini. The Partenopei have long set sights on the Atalanta prodigy, but they are not close to signing him, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays.

La Dea asks for €50M for their prodigy, who’s also on Manchester United and Chelsea’s radars. The Azzurri, who will get slightly more from the sale of their ace to Bayern Munich, won’t offer that much. The Bergamaschi are in the driver’s seat. They believe the center-back would be happy to stay. He’s under contract until 2027 thanks to a recent extension.

Napoli could re-open talks for Scalvini after assessing a few other options. The requests for Max Kilman and Robin Le Normand aren’t as lofty but still considerable. The candidacy of Ko Itakura continues to linger.

The Partenopei have two other Serie A alternatives in their sights, Udinese’s Jaka Bijol and Perr Schuurs. According to TuttoSport, they proposed €28M for the Torino star, but they were rebuffed. Liverpool are keen too.

Our Take on Napoli and Scalvini

Buying from Atalanta has always been an expensive affair, even more so after their partial ownership change and their return to Europe. Chances are the Scudetto champions will replicate as quick deal out of the blue as they did for Kim last summer.
