Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has admitted his club are in negotiations to sign Gonzalo Higuain.
De Laurentiis made the revelation this morning after taking part in a Q&A session on social network Twitter, revealing that the Serie A club have €124.5m at their disposal for new players.
Napoli have money available following the sale of Edinson Cavani to Paris Saint-Germain and De Laurentiis explained how the figures stack up.
“If we add that €64.5m to the €60m that we had in our budget already then we get €124.5m that Napoli will invest with diligence and experience,” he noted.
“It’s true we are in negotiations with Higuain and also [Internacional’s] Damiao,”
He also confirmed Spanish international Raul Albiol, Real Madrid’s 27-year-old defender, is close to a move to Naples.
“Raul Albiol is having his medical. Let us hope he passes it.”
