Blues youngster Oleksandr Zunchenko is open to a January move to Napoli, according to the players agent. Zinchenko has made just two appearances for the blues so far this season, and almost joined the Serie A side in the summer.
The Ukrainian’s agent, Alan Prudnikov, has claimed he spoke with Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli earlier this year and has now suggested a deal could be resurrected. “We always open to proposals coming from Italy. Napoli showed interest both over the summer and the year before, but never managed to find an agreement with Manchester City. I met with Giuntoli and we laid down the foundations of a deal with Zinchenko. But the two clubs could not agree a fee. We’d be ready to discuss it again, though.”
It was rumoured in the summer that Zinchenko turned down a move to Premier league new boys Wolves, preferring to stay and fight for a place with the blues, so how much truth there is to the Napoli rumours will remain to be seen.
But should the blues sell the youngster to Napoli? It was only during the summer that Italian midfielder Jorginho looked set to join the blues from the Italian club, only for him to join Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea instead.
Maybe City should agree a £50m fee with Napoli before selling him to Juventus!
