Tottenham have joined the race to sign one of Napoli’s best defenders, Faouzi Ghoulam.
The Algerian left back is reportedly very unhappy in Naples currently and seriously looking for suitors that would meet his demands.
AC Milan have been in talks with the player’s representatives after they were informed of the player’s contract stand-off with his club.
Napoli want to upgrade his current contract which earns him £800,000 per year, but they are only willing to offer £1.6 million per season. The players wants £2.5 million per season, and this has put his long term future in doubt.
Mauricio Pochettino wants to add more experience to his squad as they prepare for next season’s Champions League. He believes that Fauzi Ghoulam’s experience in Europe and the rugged Italian Serie A would give his team an edge in their next European adventure.
However, a contract extension with Napoli seem to be the only option the Algerian might have, as it is revealed his wife is settled in Naples and wants their children to continue growing in the City.
