The transfer market is in full swing and Napoli don’t want to be left behind. Following the departure of Tanguy Ndombélé back to Tottenham and Al-Ahli’s interest in Piotr Zielinski, the Italian side are looking to bolster their midfield with four big names.
The market situation has been calm for Napoli so far, the company has announced departures and changes in the coaching staff. Kim Min-Jae joined FC Bayern Munich for 50 million euros, while Luciano Spalletti decided to take a break from coaching. Sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli also left the club to join Juventus.

However, Piotr Zielinski’s possible departure to Al-Ahli in 2024 has put Napoli on high alert and sparked a search for alternatives in the market. With less than a month to go before the transfer window closes, the Neapolitan club are familiar with last-minute operations such as Zambo Anguissa’s arrival in 2021 on the last day of the market.
In this sense, according to information from the Corriere dello Sport, Napoli have several players in their sights to strengthen the midfield. One of the prominent names is Giovani Lo Celso, standing on the Tottenham exit ramp. Although FC Barcelona and Real Betis are also interested, the financial situation of both teams is blocking their entry into LaLiga for the time being.
In Serie A, Napoli are closely following the development of Teun Koopmeiners, an Atalanta player who has become one of Italy’s finest midfielders. Despite his availability as a free agent in 2025, Atalanta has no intention of just letting him go.
Napoli are also eyeing Galatasaray’s Lucas Torreira, who could be on his way to his fourth team in Italy after Pescara, Sampdoria and Fiorentina. Finally, Boubakary Soumaré’s profile, currently at Leicester, is also sparking interest in the Neapolitan team.
With Napoli eyeing multiple options, he’s keeping an eye on the transfer market and could make some big moves in midfield before the transfer window closes.
