Napoli are also looking to bring Torino defender Ola Aina to the Sao Polo Stadium, according to reports from Italian media outlet Corriere Dello Sport, as per ilNapolista.
The 23-year-old defender would be expected to provide stiff competition for the duo of Albania’s Elseid Hysaj and Italy’s Giovanni Di Lorenzo, should he move to Naples.
