After the departure of Kim Min-jae, Napoli are still exploring the summer mercato in search of defensive talent. Despite recruiting Natan from Red Bull Bragantino, the Azzurri are keen to add a new defensive talent. Mohamed Simakan of RB Leipzig has been chosen.

A starter in Leipzig’s German Supercup final win over Bayern, Mohamed Simakan impressed Napoli with his performance. Aurelio De Laurentiis, the club president, has decided to buy him before the market closes. The aim is to have a competitive squad capable of competing in both the Champions League and the league. However, the German club may not necessarily want to sell the player, whose contract runs until 2027. The 23-year-old has a market value of 23 million euros. With a large cheque, the Partenopei could convince the Red Bull management.
