Napoli are now in the race for Torino defender Alessandro Buongiorno, who is also a transfer target for both Inter Milan and AC Milan.

The 24-year-old is a youth product of the Granata who climbed his way up the club’s ranks to become a stalwart with the first team.

The Italian’s exploits this season and have also earned recognition from Luciano Spalletti who added him to the Italy squad.

Therefore, Inter have been keeping tabs on the left-footed defender. He’s one of the profiles the Nerazzurri are following as they look to bolster Simone Inzaghi’s defensive department for next season.

However, the Serie A leaders will be facing some stern competition for the player’s signature.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInterNews, Napoli are also competing for Buongiorno’s favor.

The Partenopei are seeking defensive reinforcement as they have been notably shaky at the back this season.

In addition to Napoli, foreign clubs could also enter the fray for the Italy international. In recent days, we mentioned Atletico Madrid’s interest in the player.

So due to the increasing number of suitors, Torino have raised their asking price. Their current valuation is somewhere between 35 and 40 million euros.
