Napoli, Bournemouth in for Celta Vigo’s Stanislav Lobotka

Celta Vigo have rejected Napoli’s latest offer for midfielder Stanislav Lobotka with Bournemouth also interested in the player, say reports.

Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio says the Serie A giants want the Slovakian international on a €2m loan deal with an €18m option to buy permanently in summer.

The 24-year-old has a €50m release clause in his contract with the Galician club while Napoli reportedly had a €35m bid rejected last summer.

However, the latest reports say Lobotka’s value has fallen but the Partenopei must improve their bid to €5m for the loan and their purchase option to €20m.

Lobotka joined Celta in 2017 from Danish club Nordsjaelland in a reported €4m deal but has found opportunities more limited this season, not helped by an ankle injury.
