Di Lorenzo ‘interest’

Villa are said to be interested in a deal to sign Napoli star Giovanni Di Lorenzo this summer. According to Il Mattino, Villa could make Di Lorenzo a key target ahead of this summer as they potentially prepare for Premier League football.

The 30-year-old right-back is said to be interested in playing in England and is already weighing up his future in Naples. He has previously attracted interest from Atletico Madrid, according to the report.

Alt-Nouri latest

Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly ‘ready to pay’ to sign Wolves star Rayan Ait-Nouri this summer. According to FootballTransfers, the 22-year-old is a target of City’s this summer, and they are determined to beat Arsenal and Liverpool to his signature.

It’s claimed City’s close relationship with Jorge Mendes could give them the edge, and they are reportedly considering making a player-plus-cash deal involving Sergio Gomez. It’s claimed Wolves will demand as much as £60million for Alt-Nouri, which could narrow down the race come the summer, while it could be a summer of transition for Wolves, given star man Pedro Neto also appears likely to move on.
