Napoli Keeping a Keen Eye on Latest Santos Revelation

Napoli have signed two strikers in the summer, but they continue to monitor the transfer market and have received rave reviews on Santos starlet Marcos Leonardo from their scouting department. The Azzurri are keeping close tabs on the youngster in case they decide to sell Victor Osimhen in the near future, Calciomercato informs.

The Azzurri acquired Giacomo Raspadori and Giovanni Simeone in the past window. They will spend €50M to buy them out following initial loans. The duo has performed well while the star teammate was on the mend with a thigh strain. The absence of the Nigerian international hasn’t been particularly noticeable.

The Napoli officials have been impressed with Marcos Leonardo, who’s been highly productive since bursting onto the scenes and especially in the current season. He has bagged 19 goals and dished 5 assists in 50 appearances in 2022.

Osimhen is under contract until 2025. He has been routinely linked to top Premier League sides in recent windows. The management is doing their due diligence and shortlisting possible replacements if they get an offer they can’t refuse.

Our Take on Napoli Tracking Marcos Leonardo

The 19-year-old comes from a prestigious school and is inevitably drawing a ton of attention with his strong showings. The last few matches showed to the Partenopei that their top striker isn’t as indispensable as previously imagined. They have coped very well while he was out. That puts them in a position to eventually consider giant bids, which wasn’t the case in the summer. But they generally hold onto players for a few years and dictate the timing of their departures on their own.
