Napoli lodge £5m bid for Valencia defender

Published Add your comment

Napoli have made a £5million bid to sign Arsenal and Manchester City target Adil Rami, according to talkSPORT.

The Valencia defender has been heavily linked with a move away from La Liga this summer, with speculation suggesting he could be on his way to the Premier League.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing Rami to the Emirates Stadium, as he looks to strengthen his defensive ranks before the close of the transfer window.

Manuel Pellegrini is also believed to be monitoring the France international's situation at the Mestalla, as he too looks to lure the centre-back to the Etihad Stadium.

Valencia value Rami at £9million, and will not take kindly to Napoli's cut-price bid for the 27-year-old.

However, the Serie 'A' club's offer could now spark a bidding war for the player's signature, with Arsenal and Manchester City poised to enter the race.

Rami is eager for a new challenge and is believed to favour a move to England over Italy, but with Napoli the only club to put an official offer on the table, a switch to Stadio San Paolo might turn out to be his only transfer option.
