According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Napoli are interested in Wolves forward Diogo Jota.
The Portugal international is enjoying a prolific campaign at Molineux this season, having fired in 15 goals in just 36 games across all competitions.
Naturally, other sides have begun to take notice a lot more, and Italian publication TuttoMercatoWeb claim Serie A giants Napoli have Jota “on their notebook”.
The report adds they are “working on the market” for the following season, and have identified both Jota and Milan ace Hakan Calhanoglu as “two blue ideas for next year”.
Whilst Raul Jimenez has been linked with a move away from Wolves in recent months – reports had even suggested Manchester United were interested in luring him away in the January transfer window – the potential loss of Diogo Jota would arguably be even more significant.
The 23-year-old was there during Wolves’ final campaign in the Championship, and was a large reason behind why they got promoted to the big-time – he smashed in 17 goals in 44 games.
And now, he is continuing to be one of Nuno’s side’s star performers, and really symbolises Wolves’ path to the top-flight. He didn’t just join when they had made it to the big leagues. He played a major part in helping them get there.
It’s no surprise that teammates like Conor Coady have swooned over the Portuguese ace, with the Wolves captain even saying he is a “phenomenal footballer and it’s a pleasure to have him here“.
It’s exactly why Fosun simply can’t afford to lose the £31.5m-rated ace. He just means too much to the club both on the pitch and off it.
