Napoli set their sights on Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez (Calciomercato)

Napoli have reportedly set their sights on Cagliari and Uruguay midfielder Nahitan Nandez, who would accept the move.

Napoli could be in the market for a new defensive midfielder as Allan seems to be on his way out.

With that in mind, claims Nandez has emerged as one of Gennaro Gattuso’s ‘objectives’.

The 24-year-old only joined Cagliari from Boca Juniors last summer as a replacement for Nicolo Barella.

He has gone on to post one goal and four assists in 26 games for the Sardinians this season.

Nandez had agreed a new contract with the Rossoblu before the coronavirus lockdown.

However, the website warns even his new €38m release clause may not be enough to keep him where he is.
