Couldn't find a topic about him and we are more and more linked to him in the last few hours. Napoli do not want a loan construction but a direct buy. Cost would be around 7-8 million. However, the latest rumours suggest that we might trade Pazzini for him. DeLa and Moratti already talked about it. He does have an Italian passport.
Ferando is still the number one choice but if he turns out to be too expensive Gargano would be a nice second choice. I prefer him over De Jong personally (although I'm Dutch).
PS First time I opened a topic here on FIF
