Agent: Navas honoured by Napoli interest

Keylor Navas’ agent has admitted that his client would be ‘honoured’ to leave Levante and join Napoli.

The Granotes goalkeeper was one of the revelations of last season, helping the Valencian side to a top half finish.

Following impressive performances for Costa Rica at this summer’s World Cup as well, several top European clubs are thought to have been in touch.

And with the Italian outfit said to be interested, the shot-stopper’s representative has conceded that a switch to Naples could be on the cards.

“Personally I haven’t spoken to any Napoli directors, but I cannot rule out them speaking directly to Levante,” agent Ricardo Cabanas told CalcioNapoli24.

“Keylor has made it clear on numerous occasions that he wants to play for a prestigious European club and compete in big international tournaments.

“In that sense, Napoli would be a great opportunity. He is fundamental for Levante and has a contract until June 30 2015, but the player wants to make a step up in quality and we are working for that to happen.

“I can say already that Porto have enquired about him several times. He’ll soon have an EU passport, but will have to wait until early September for the red tape to go through.

“If he were to receive an offer from Napoli, we’d be very happy to listen and Keylor would be honoured.”
