Napoli Set Sights on Promising Bodo/Glimt Midfielder

Napoli have identified the first name to potentially bolster their midfield in January in Bodo/Glimt’s Albert Gronbaek. The Partenopei wanted to make a splash at the position by signing Gabri Veiga last summer. However, Al-Alhi hijacked their bid at the 11th hour, and they invested in Jesper Lindstrom afterward.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the youngster is versatile and can star on the wings as well. He has a robust valuation, €8.5M. He has scored 8 goals in 23 appearances so far this season. His team is currently top of the table.

The Norwegian league ends in December, so that wouldn’t be an issue for Napoli and their possible attempt to lure Gronbaek. Bodo/Glimt acquired him from Aarhus for €3M in August 2022. On top of his domestic success, he has scored three goals in eight appearances in the European Conference League. He has eight caps with Denmark U-21.

The 22-year-old’s skillset and characteristics are similar to Davide Frattesi, whom the Scudetto holders chased before Inter won the race. He could be brought in as an early replacement for Piotr Zielinski, who’s still in the dark concerning his future, the publication adds.

Our Take on Napoli and Gronbaek

Whether it’ll be him or somebody else, and perhaps a more defensive-minded option would be better, they surely need a new box-to-box since Elijf Elmas is specializing in attacking roles, leaving them one man short regardless of what will happen with the Polish star.
