This forced the Southerners to switch their attention to another performer in this position, who became the Uruguayan defensive player of the Spanish Getafe Mathias Olivera.
Luciano Spalletti’s team tried to acquire the 24-year-old in the summer of last year, but eventually Napoli decided to watch the player’s progress.
In the current season, Mathias has already played 18 matches for his current club, scoring a goal and an assist.
According to the Italian division of Sky Sports, Napoli are ready to pay 10-11 million euros for Olivera if he is on loan with the right to buy at the end of the current soccer year.
The current agreement with the team from the suburbs of Madrid is until 2025.
