Napoli in Panic as Agent Drops Bombshell

In addition to missing out on European qualification and being on the verge of losing Victor Osimhen, it’s not nearly the end of problems for Napoli. In his recent interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s agent, Mamuka Jugeli, dropped a bombshell when he said Paris Saint-Germain have tabled a formal bid for his client.

Jugeli denied speculation over the Georgia international’s potential switch to Saudi Arabia. But PSG’s concrete interest in the versatile forward is far more ominous for the Napoli faithful.

Saudi Arabia’s interest in Kvaratskhelia is not true. There is interest and an offer from PSG on the player, but everything depends on the decision of Napoli and its president,” he said, as quoted by Gianluca Di Marzio.

It’s believed the perennial Ligue 1 champions have allocated no less than €100 million to bring Kvaratskhelia to Paris. Such a significant amount could make the heart of even someone as stone-cold as Aurelio De Laurentiis tremble.

With PSG preparing for life after Kylian Mbappe, one of Europe’s wealthiest clubs is frantically searching for a top-class forward to fill the void. Milan speed demon Rafael Leao has been part of the conversation, but it seems Les Parisiens have identified Kvaratskhelia as Mbappe’s heir.

De Laurentiis will have the final say. If he’s to hire Antonio Conte, who’s reportedly keen to reunite with Romelu Lukaku at Napoli, the controversial filmmaker can’t afford to lose his two best players in one summer.

Osimhen’s departure is a virtual certainty. It means the Napoli bigwig must stay immune to PSG’s offer for Kvaratskhelia.
