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.
