Tottenham Lining Up Offer For Napoli Ace Kvaratskhelia

Runaway Serie A leaders Napoli are already at risk of losing headline performer Khvicha Kvaratskhelia to wealthy Premier League suitors. As reported by, Tottenham Hotspur managing director Fabio Paratici has placed the Georgian winger at the top of his wishlist.

Since swapping Dinamo Batumi for Napoli for approximately €10m in the summer, Kvaratskhelia has taken Serie A by storm. Brought in to replace long-serving stalwart Lorenzo Insigne, the tricky winger has excelled in Naples, racking up eight goals and ten assists from 17 competitive appearances. 

Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti has recently waxed lyrical about the Georgia international’s qualities, calling him the ‘difference-marker.’ No wonder the Italian manager spoke highly of Kvaratskhelia, considering the latter has played a prominent role in propelling the Partenopei to the top of the Serie A standings.

He immediately clicked with Victor Osimhen, forging one of the most formidable attacking partnerships in Italy’s top flight this season. However, less than six months into his fabulous Napoli adventure, the 21-year-old could move on. 

Kvaratskhelia’s world-class potential has earned him a high place in Paratici’s notebook, with the Tottenham chief executive aiming to bring him to the Premier League. Since Paratici and Antonio Conte moved to London, Spurs have developed a habit of buying in Serie A.

Ivan Perisic, Dejan Kulusevski, and Rodrigo Bentancur have swapped Italy’s top division for Tottenham during their tenure in north London. Now it’s time for Kvaratskhelia to do the same, though Napoli are unlikely to make it easy for Spurs. 

Known as an appreciative and passionate club owner, Aurelio De Laurentiis will undoubtedly do his best to keep Kvaratskhelia at Napoli. For years, he was able to fend off foreign interest in Insigne and Kalidou Koulibaly, and there’s no chance he’d crack under pressure now. 

Kvaratskhelia has earned a household status in Napoli, and it’s hard to see him leaving southern Italy on such short notice.
