Despite what Boca Juniors president, Daniel Angelici, said yesterday about his willingness to make any possible deals regarding Agustin Almendra, Corriere dello Sport report that Napoli are still pushing for the player.
The report emphasises the fact that Napoli are leading the race by holding discussions with the player’s representatives and attempting to become the player’s desired destination.
“Napoli have taken some steps towards the player’s signature and have been doing so for quite some time. They have approached Almendra’s entourage and are trying to make a deal with the player. They are trying to get a hold of the player and appeal to him early on in order to avoid any potential auctions and also become the player’s top choice. Almendra is fascinated by the possibility of being able to express himself and showcase his abilities in the same stadium where Diego Armando Maradona once showed the world his class.”
