Sky: Napoli step up for Meret

Napoli have increased their offer for Udinese goalkeeper Alex Meret to €25m plus €10m in various bonuses, according to Sky Sport Italia.

While RAI Sport and Onda Cero claimed today that they were close to an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain for Alphonse Areola at €20m plus bonuses, there are differing rumours elsewhere.

Gianluca Di Marzio said that Napoli stepped up negotiations with Udinese this evening and have set their sights firmly on Meret.

The 21-year-old has only 13 Serie A appearances, but the offer on the table is now €25m plus €10m in performance-related bonuses.

The debate now is in terms of bonuses, as Udinese want them to be fairly simple to achieve, whereas Napoli hope they’ll be tougher.
