Spurs part of Premier League trio chasing deal for Napoli midfielder

Spurs, Watford and Wolves are all interested in a summer move for Napoli midfielder Amadou Diawara, according to a report.

The Guinea international made just 19 appearances under Carlo Ancelotti this term, leading to rumours he could seek a summer exit in search of more playing time.

Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster his central midfield in January, with doubts over the long-term futures of Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko, and Diawara is believed to a major target for the Spurs chief.

Napoli reportedly rejected a €38m bid for the player last summer, but the midfielder’s future is expected to be sorted one way or another this summer.

According to Italian paper il Corriere dello Sport, three Premier League clubs are interested in the idea of signing Diawara.

They claim that Spurs have held talks with Napoli over a deal, however they appear to have cooled their interest in recent weeks, but that does not mean they won’t go back in for the player this summer.

Now, the Rome-based newspaper alludes to Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers being the two clubs most interested in signing the 21-year-old.
