Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been linked with a move away from the Serie A club at the end of the season.
Ben Jacobs has told Caught Offside that Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Newcastle United are keen on signing Khvicha Kvaratskhelia from Napoli. The Serie A giants will demand well over €100 million for the Georgian winger.
The 22-year-old has been in excellent form this season, scoring 12 goals and picking up 15 assists along the way. He has helped Napoli fight for the Scudetto, and the Serie A outfit are currently favourites to win the league title. Kvaratskhelia is undoubtedly one of the best young attackers in world football right now. And he could prove to be a sensational acquisition for all three clubs.
Jacobs revealed to CaughtOffside, “Manchester City and Newcastle are two Premier League clubs keeping close tabs on Kvaratskhelia. He is also drawing attention from PSG and Real Madrid. Eddie Howe, in particular, sees Kvaratskhelia as a fit because he’s fast, technical and a natural in a 4-3-3.
“Napoli don’t want to sell. It really is as simple as that. And they definitely don’t want a summer where they let Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia go. Both players enjoy playing together and Napoli are flying. It’s basically a procession now to the Serie A title – their first since 1989/90.”
Real Madrid need to add more depth to their attack, and the 22-year-old Napoli star has emerged as a viable target. Although Kvaratskhelia is naturally a left-sided winger, he is versatile enough to play on either flank.
Meanwhile, Manchester City could use someone like him in the wide areas as well. Jack Grealish has not been able to live up to the expectations since his big-money move from Aston Villa. And Kvaratskhelia has recently popped up on their radar.
On the other hand, Newcastle United need to add more quality in the final third. The Magpies have drawn nearly half of their games in the Premier League this season, and they will be hoping to turn those draws into wins now. Signing the 22-year-old will add more cutting edge in the final third and help them secure more points.
However, the highly-rated attacker is not keen moving away from Napoli right now. And it could be difficult to convince the Serie A club to sell him in the summer. Apparently, the player is valued at €100 million. And it remains to be seen where he ends up eventually. The 22-year-old has all the attributes to develop into a world-class player in the coming seasons. He could end up justifying a major outlay in the coming seasons.
