Napoli Rumored to Have Almost Completed Kvaratskhelia Deal

It appears to be just a matter of time until Napoli finalize the acquisition of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. His transfer from Rubin Kazan to Dinamo Batumi has not affected their pursuit. He has reportedly already agreed to his next contract and taken the medicals in an undisclosed location ahead of his summer move to Serie A, Corriere dello Sport informs.

The Georgian prodigy recently rescinded his deal with the Russian side to return to his previous club. He inked a two-year pact, but he will be on the move again in the summer. He took advantage of the special window created by FIFA due to the war in Ukraine.

According to the Italian publication, Kvaratskhelia will pen a five-year contract with Napoli, with €1.5M wages. The Azzurri will have to negotiate the fee with Dinamo Batumi. However, it will be lower than the €15M previously asked by Rubin Kazan, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs. The advantageous terms of the purchase were the main driving factors behind the Partenopei’s decision to pursue him in the first place.

Kvaratskhelia will be the first addition by Napoli to replace Lorenzo Insigne. However, they might bring in another offensive weapon if they let Hirving Lozano depart. They do not think the Mexican forward has fully lived up to their €35M investment and will listen to the potential offers. The Azzurri reached out to Sassuolo to ask for Hamed Traorè, Fabrizio Romano reports. However, the Neroverdi rebuffed their initial attempt, setting a sky-high price tag.
