Serie A champions, Napoli, have joined the race to sign Nigerian winger, Samuel Chukwueze as a potential move would see him join his friend and international teammate, Victor Osimhen at Naples.
Napoli are ready to battle AC Milan, Real Madrid, Aston Villa, and Newcastle to convince the talented winger, Chukwueze for a move to Italy.
Villarreal are willing to sell Chukwueze but his €30m price tag has discouraged his suitors.
According to Italian transfer expert Rudy Galetti, Napoli are keen to secure the signature of the 24-year old winger after his impressive displays for LaLiga club, Villarreal last season.
Napoli are looking to strengthen their attack as Chukwueze is considered a replacement for Mexican winger, Hirving Lozano, who is set for a potential departure during this transfer window.
The Italian champions are monitoring the Nigerian winger but the price currently set by Villarreal is considered too high.
