Napoli Likely Standing Pat Despite Lingering Links

Napoli are keeping tabs on a few options to round out their midfield, in particular Boubakary Soumaré, but they are more likely to stay as is than to make an addition despite a pair of potential late exits.

According to Foot Mercato (via MSN), Sevilla, the Azzurri, and Torino have been chasing after the Leicester City player for a few weeks. He was proposed to Inter too, which was also looking for a midfielder. Olympique Lyonnais and Sevilla have come into the picture in the last few days.

Napoli are reportedly seeking Soumaré on loan considering the short time left to complete the deal. According to DAZN’s Orazio Accomando, the Azzurri aren’t currently actively negotiating any signing. The sale of Hirving Lozano will be completed soon. The future of Diego Demme continues to hang in the balance.

After minor issues between the parties, the Mexican winger will put pen to paper with PSV today. The Scudetto holders will cash in 12.2M. They settled the divergences with agent Barry Whelan and intermediary Luca Puccinelli, Gianluca Di Marzio relays.

According to Calciomercato, the other names on the Napoli radar for a potential last-minute acquisition, besides Soumaré, are Olympique Lyonnais’ Maxence Caqueret and Galatasaray’s Lucas Torreira. Gianluca Gaetano would depart on loan if they onboarded one new piece.
