Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly approached Italian giants Napoli about midfielder Amadou Diawara, who would be a brilliant signing for them.
According to CalcioNapoli24, the Premier League side have made the first steps about trying to land the enforcer in the January transfer market.
The report details that Serie A side Napoli would like to keep their 21-year-old talent, but recognise he’s had a lack of minutes under his belt so far this season due to fierce competition in the first team.
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo should cross his fingers that they can try negotiate some kind of deal for Diawara.
The Guinea international is exactly the type of signing that could make a difference at Molineux in the second half of the season, as they are crying out for more options behind Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves in the centre of the park.
Diawara is a powerhouse that would surely cope well with the physicality of the Premier League and he already has 75 Serie A appearances under his belt.
The central midfielder is extremely confident in possession and could play a role of linking defence to attack at Wolves if given the chance.
He seems to tick a lot of boxes for a Nuno-type signing and the fact he’s made just five senior appearances for Napoli this season should give Wolves some encouragement.
