Napoli Enter Race for Roma and West Ham Target Lukic

Torino midfield ace Sasa Lukic has been subjected to exit rumors from quite a while now. The number of suitors are piling up for the Serbia international, with yet another hotshot from Serie A interested to lure him away.

League leaders Napoli are keen on replacing the potentially outbound Diego Demme with Lukic, as per Tuttosport (via Voce Giallorossa). The Torino center-half is liked by Roma and also by Premier League outfit West Ham United, but the lure of a starting berth at Napoli might prove hard to resist.

Granata sporting director Davide Vagnati was in London earlier last week assessing the 26-year-old’s future at the club, following failed contract extension talks with his agency. West Ham are solid contenders for his signature, given Torino’s interest in making loanee Nikola Vlasic’s deal permanent at the end of the season.

Sending Lukic the other way would considerably lower Vlasic’s €14.5M asking price by West Ham.

Napoli have attempted to contact Torino to learn about the midfielder’s availability, but it is still unclear on Torino’s end. Lukic has a contract valid until the end of the 2023/24 season.
