Napoli have made the arrival of a central defender a priority objective for this winter and that is because Manolas’s departure has left a big hole in defense. Yesterday we anticipated the interest that there was in hiring Duje Caleta-Car but in the last hours one of the alternatives on the table would have accelerated.
According to the information that we handle in TodoFichajes, Naples negotiates with Manchester United the transfer of Axel Tuanzebe. The English footballer is on loan this season at Aston Villa but the lack of minutes he is enjoying in Birmingham will precipitate the cancellation of the loan.
The intention of Napoli is to seal a loan until the end of the season, keeping the option to buy their pass if a series of conditions are met. Negotiations between the two clubs are well advanced and it would only be necessary to confirm the player’s separation from Aston Villa.
