Napoli pursues Emre Can for winter midfield reinforcement

Napoli aims to fortify midfield in the winter transfer window, reportedly considering a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Emre Can.

RB Leipzig has already acquired Eljif Elmas from the Partenopei, and Walter Mazzarri will face a further decrease in options in the center of the pitch as Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is set to depart for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

Napoli has already pinpointed their primary target, aiming to finalize a deal for Udinese starlet Lazar Samardzic. Additionally, they are actively searching for another suitable reinforcement as they strive to secure a top-four finish.

Today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport, provides extensive coverage of Napoli’s serious consideration of making a move for Can in the upcoming transfer window. This is remarkable, even though the midfielder from Borussia Dortmund does not align closely with their typical player profile.

Acquiring the 29-year-old German would entail a cost of approximately €20 million, coupled with a net annual salary of around €4 million. This presents a potential risk for Aurelio De Laurentiis’ club, as they typically exhibit reluctance to invest heavily in an older player.

Emre Can had a previous stint with Juventus, spanning 18 months from July 2018 to January 2020. During this period, he scored four goals and contributed one assist in a total of 45 appearances.
