Amadou Diawara TEAMtalk

Napoli star Amadou Diawara reportedly rejected a move to Wolves, amid talk he could be part of a swap deal for Roma’s Kostas Manolas.

According to Sky Sport Italia, midfielder Diawara, who has also been linked with Tottenham, wants to remain in Italy and make the switch to the Stadio Olimpico this summer.

But the report states that for the move to go through, the 21-year-old decided to resist the chance to move to the Premier League with Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.

Diawara is not considered to be part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans in Naples, making only 19 competitive appearances for the club in the 2018-19 campaign.

However, Roma remain adamant they will only part with Napoli target Manolas if someone activates the €36m release clause in his contract.

Juventus and Milan are also known to be interested in the Greek international centre-back, while Napoli view Manolas the perfect replacement for Villarreal bound Raul Albiol.
