Serie A leaders, Napoli are preparing a bid to add Simone Verdi and Gerard Deulofeu to their squad in this January transfer window as reported by Mediaset Premium.

The Italian team has been targeting Bologna’s Verdi for a long time now and they believe the time is set to snap up the Italian midfielder.

Verdi is believed to be interested in the move and might consider leaving Bologna to have his medicals in Napoli on Monday.

The deal to sign the free-kick specialist could well be around €20million plus bonuses in a likely four-year contract.

As soon as Verdi’s deal is completed, Napoli might also consider the option of signing Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona.

The winger who is also linked with Inter Milan might sanction a loan move to Italy with an option to sign a permanent deal at the end of the season.
