Roma and Napoli Track Leverkusen Defensive Sensation

Almost all Italian top dogs are eager to reinforce their respective backlines, but Roma and Napoli are interested more than most to bolster defenses. A certain up and coming Bundesliga star is in the radar of both the Azzurri giants, and neither want to miss out on signing the highly-rated defender.

According to TUTTOmercatoweb, 20-year-old Bayer Leverkusen talent Piero Hincapie could very well move to either of the aforementioned duo in a bid to rack up their defense. The Ecuador international extended his stay at Leverkusen only recently, stretching his stay until the summer of 2026.

The Partenopei and Giallorossi have kept close tabs on Hincapie throughout the current season, and the management of both teams are reportedly impressed in the youngster’s abilities. Among the two, it is Roma who have made initial contact.t

However, they are not the only teams in line for his signature, as Premier League outfit Newcastle United, boosted by the influx of finances, are eyeing him too.

He turned out to become a valuable player in the Leverkusen starting eleven after having initially been bought as a youth prospect in his maiden European season. He has 2 goals in 33 appearances for Die Werkself.
