Aurelio De Laurentiis and Gino Pozzo have found an agreement in principle for Gerard Deulofeu: the Spaniard is Napoli’s first goal for the attack, with the player who has already said yes. The agreement with Udinese is about 15 million euros plus bonuses. Before closing the deal, however, Napoli will have to sell one between Adam Ounas – in the plans of Monza like Pinamonti – and Matteo Politano.
Temptation Gabriel Jesus for Juventus: the Brazilian forward of Manchester City will leave Guardiola’s team after the arrivals of Erling Håland and Julián Alvarez. The 25-year-old has also been proposed to Arsenal, but the will to play in the Champions League is crucial. City has opened up to the sale of the Brazilian but asks for 50 million euros to let their striker leave while Gabriel Jesus asks for a four-year net worth 8 million per season.
After the arrival of Nemanja Matic, Roma are close to placing the second market hit. The Giallorossi club is one step away from Lille’s right-back Zeki Celik. The Turkish born in 1997 already has an agreement with the Giallorossi – 5 years at 2.3 million euros – and the one between the club and the French is not so far away: Pinto offered 7 million plus 2 bonuses while Lille asked for 10. In the today other contacts between the two clubs will be staged, with Roma wanting to hurry to bring Celik to Trigoria.

Juventus insists on Nahuel Molina. Udinese’s right winger wants the bianconeri and for this reason he has refused – at the moment – the hypothesis of Atletico Madrid. Molina already has an agreement with Juve and a summit between the two clubs is scheduled for the week to conclude the deal. Udinese starts from a request for 20 million euros, the sports director Federico Cherubini would like to lower the figure by inserting some counterparts (Rolando Mandragora above all), while the Friulians really like Fabio Miretti, midfielder who has shown himself in the last matches of championship with the Juve shirt.
Frantic contacts between PSG and Inter: the Parisian club wants to bring the Nerazzurri defender to France Milan Skriniar. The Slovakian has a contact expiring in 2023 and the first contacts between Beppe Marotta and the defender’s entourage have already started in May. PSG, through intermediaries, offered Inter € 55 million plus 10 bonuses. Inter, however, declined the first offer from PSG, which will return to office in the next few days: to deprive themselves of Skriniar, the Nerazzurri are asking for 80 million, which can also include bonuses.

David Ospina is getting closer to Real Madrid. The Colombian goalkeeper – Ancelotti’s protégé – will not stay in Naples: his future will be in the champion club of Spain and Europe where the 33-year-old will play second in Thibaut Courtois. Aurelio De Laurentiis, meanwhile, initiated contacts with the entourage of Alex Meret to extend the contract until 2027. In place of David Ospina, as second goalkeeper, Salvatore Sirigu has been blocked for a month, on which there is also the interest of Lazio.
Fiorentina in the last few hours has made an important poll for Javi Galán of Celta Vigo. Viola likes the 27-year-old left-back but the cost of 12 million euros is considered excessive. Instead, he continues the negotiation for Dodo for Shakhtar: the Brazilian right-back is the first goal to replace Álvaro Odriozola, destined to return to Real Madrid.
The scenario around the Juventus defender Merih Demiral it changed in a matter of hours. L’Atalanta, until Friday, was convinced to redeem the defender born in 1998 for a sum close to 20 million euros, and then put the player on the market. Demiral broke up with Gasperini and even in case of redemption his adventure in Bergamo would be over. Yesterday, however, the Bergamo players informed the Juventus management that they no longer want to redeem the player. Demiral will return to Juventus who will decide the future of the Turkish player calmly. Newcastle sees him as an alternative to Steve Botman, while in Italy they like Naples (immediate assault if Kalidou Koulibaly were to leave) and Fiorentina (for the possible replacement of Nikola Milenkovic who could end up at Inter as Milan Skriniar’s heir).
Adriano Galliani has been wooing for a while Alessio Romagnoli and does not give up. Monza is in close contact with the agency that looks after the interests of the 27-year-old central defender. Romagnoli – in a few days he will be released from Milan – wants Lazio, even if between the biancoceleste offer and the request there is a gap of about 300 thousand euros (2.7 million plus bonuses against 3 plus bonuses). Monza has proposed a contract worth 3 million net per season (the one that Romagnoli is asking Lazio), but the defender continues to wait for the decisive move by president Lotito. In recent days the AC Milan captain has also received an offer from Valencia, but the Spanish club at the moment cannot go beyond 2.5 million euros.
The contact between Rome and Milan – to talk about Alessandro Florenzi, but not only – gave the desired result. The 31-year-old right-back will be redeemed by the Rossoneri for 3 million euros. The two clubs also talked about Nicolò Zaniolo: Paolo Maldini greatly appreciates the footballer, but the 60 million requested by Roma are considered excessive by the Rossoneri club which in the last few hours has turned on the Bruges playmaker Charles De Ketelaere.
Christopher Nkunku is Manchester United’s dream: the English have put the formidable 25-year-old winger at the top of their wish list. Ten Hag would prefer to bring forward Antony (already trained at Ajax) to the Premier, but the first choice remains Nkunku. On the attacker there is strong competition from the PSG-club where he was born in football – but Leipzig is asking for 100 million euros. His contract expires in 2023 and the Germans have already initiated the first contacts with the French footballer’s entourage to extend until 2025.
