Napoli could give the go ahead to let Fernando Llorente leave the club for the right price today according to a report in today’s print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport.
The veteran Spanish forward has drawn strong links to Inter in recent weeks and Napoli seemed reluctant to deal him away but appear to have changed their mind.
Llorente’s departure could be linked to that of Dries Mertens however. Mertens has drawn interest from Chelsea and if he leaves for them, Napoli may become reluctant again to let Llorente go because they would then only be left with Arkadiusz Milik if they let both players go.
Llorente is one of a number of strikers Inter have an interest in making a last minute move for. As per other reports in the media, Inter also have an interest in signing Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud and Leicester City’s Islam Slimani, who is currently out on loan at French side Monaco.
