Napoli have dropped their interest in Wojciech Szczesny, as they’ve been told he’s decided on Juventus.

  • Italian journalist Di Marzio says Szczesny has chosen Juventus as his next club
  • Juventus have yet to agree a fee with Arsenal
  • They could sell number two keeper Neto to Napoli before buying Szczesny

Napoli were one of the clubs interested in Szczesny but it seems they’ve been beaten to him by Juventus.

Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio told Radio Marte that Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis contacted Arsenal about Szczesny’s availability, only to be told the Pole would be joining the Old Lady this summer.

While Juventus may have agreed terms with the 27-year-old, they’ve yet to agree a fee with Arsenal. The asking price is reportedly €15m and Juventus have yet to offer anything close to that.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus hope to raise funds by selling their current backup keeper Neto to Napoli for €12m. This could lead to an eventual chain reaction of transfers.
