La Real’s Oyarzabal set for Napoli?

Napoli are keen to sign Real Sociedad’s Mikel Oyarzabal after extensively scouting the winger, according to reports.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports the Serie A club’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis has met the player’s agent in Madrid to discuss a possible switch to southern Italy.

The 20-year-old has made 29 league appearances for La Real this campaign, netting once and providing seven assists.

The Eibar-native signed a new deal with the San Sebastian club in August of last year, tying him to the Basques until June 2022 with the deal reportedly including a €50m release clause, likely to detract many potential suitors.

Eusebio Sacristan’s men are currently fighting for a European qualification spot – currently sitting 7th in La Liga but only a point behind 5th-placed Villarreal with two games remaining.
