It’s the winter mercato. Napoli have already completed a number of signings, but they still want more. The Azzurri are on the trail of Nehuen Pérez, the young defender from Udinese Calcio. Discussions are at an advanced stage, and the white smoke could appear in the next few days.
According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Napoli have begun negotiations with Udinese for the transfer of Nehuen Pérez. Aurelio De Laurentiis is currently in talks with the Pozzo family to reach an agreement. For the time being, talks are progressing well. The only issue holding up the official announcement is the transfer fee. The Udine club are asking for 20 million, while the Partenopei are only putting 15 million on the table. But this is a hurdle that could be cleared very quickly. On another front, Napoli are well advanced on the Leander Dendoncker dossier. The Belgian player is also set to leave Aston Villa and sign for the Italian champions in the next few hours.
