Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret is in the final year of his contract at the Stadio Maradona, and two Serie A teams are interested in the 2022-23 Scudetto winner, according to recent reports.
The 26-year-old had been on the verge of a move away from Napoli during the summer mercato prior to last season, but ultimately decided not to move. Meret racked up 34 Serie A appearances in the 2022-23 season as Napoli won the league title for the first time in over 30 years. In October 2022, the Napoli goalkeeper signed a contract extension that would bind him to the club until the summer of 2024. That’s only a few months away now, however, and according to news from TMW , Roma and Fiorentina are waiting to pounce should Meret become a free agent this summer. Both Roma and Fiorentina need a young goalkeeper for a long-term project. There is still a good chance that Meret will extend his contract with Napoli, but TMW notes that president Aurelio De Laurentiis would not be prepared to propose a substantial wage increase.
