Serie A heavyweights Napoli are reportedly interested in signing 19-year-old Barcelona midfield sensation Toni Caravaca this summer.
Football agent Giovanni De Montis has told Calciomercato that Toni Caravaca is a popular figure in the market. The 19-year-old Barcelona midfield sensation is the subject of interest from Napoli over a possible move in the summer transfer window. And a free transfer might be on the cards.
De Montis, who has an agency alongside Francesco Totti, said, “Offers arrived from Serie A in January, but Barcelona didn’t let him leave. The Spanish club is reflecting on the boy’s expiring contract, Napoli are also very interested.”
Toni Caravaca is the latest promising prospect emanating from La Masia to emerge in the spotlight. The Spanish whizkid has risen through the ranks in Barcelona’s youth division and currently plies his trade for the Juvenil A team. And his progress has been capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs.
Another reason for the widespread interest in Caravaca might be his expiring contract. The 19-year-old, who has made three appearances in the UEFA Youth League for Barcelona this season, will see his deal run out when the summer transfer window opens. And Napoli will look to prise him away from Barcelona ahead of the 2023/24 season.

Luciano Spalletti is overseeing a memorable 2022/23 season with Napoli. And the Partenopei will now look to embark on a successful run of winning trophies for several years. Amid Juventus’s recent controversies and the inconsistencies of the other top hitters, this is Napoli’s best chance of going on a trophy-winning spree.
But the current Serie A leaders need to ensure continuity by having world-class prospects in the setup. So it is intriguing to see Napoli showing interest in Toni Caravaca. And the 19-year-old Barcelona midfield sensation can potentially be a long-term solution alongside Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.
Meanwhile, Caravaca will unlikely be the only prodigious prospect leaving Barcelona this summer. Recent reports have suggested that Ilias Akhomach is closing in on joining Leeds United. And as Caravaca’s contract reaches close to expiry, it will not be surprising if he leaves for Italy. It will be interesting to see if Napoli can snap up the 19-year-old Barcelona whizkid.
