Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly keen on Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, valued at €100 million by Serie A giants Napoli.

According to a report from Evening Standard, Chelsea and Liverpool are thought to be admirers of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. And the two Premier League club will have to pay around €100 million to sign the Georgian winger from Serie A club Napoli.

The 21-year-old has made an instant impact since his move to Napoli, and he has firmly established himself as one of the best attackers in Serie A. The Georgian sensation has showcased his qualities in the Champions League as well.

It is no surprise that Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing him. Kvaratskhelia was excellent against the Reds in the UEFA Champions League earlier this season, and Jurgen Klopp could use a player like him in his attack.

Liverpool are lacking that extra edge in their attack after the departure of Sadio Mane, and the Napoli star could be his long-term replacement. The Reds signed Luis Diaz from FC Porto in January, but the Colombian is currently sidelined with a significant injury. The lack of depth in the wide areas has forced Klopp to use Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho in unnatural roles.

Kvaratskhelia would add goals and assists to the side and give Klopp the option to rotate his attack and keep the players fresh. The same can be said about one of his other suitors Chelsea, who have seen players like Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech fail since arriving at Stamford Bridge.

Graham Potter needs a top-class winger, and the 21-year-old seems like an ideal option. Kvaratskhelia’s playing style suggests that he could be a good fit for the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see if he can make an immediate impact, should the move go through.

Coming to the asking price, the €100 million fee would be a major obstacle for any move to Liverpool. The Reds simply do not have the resources to spend that kind of money on an attacker when they are also short in the other areas. But Chelsea certainly have the resources to pay that kind of money and it could give them an edge in the transfer chase.
