Luiz Henrique agent ‘pleased’ with Napoli link

The agent of Real Betis talent Luiz Henrique said it is ‘a pleasure to be linked with Napoli,’ but there is nothing concrete right now.

There were reports that the Brazilian was being targeted for a future move to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

The 21-year-old plays primarily on the right wing, but can also work on the left or as a centre-forward.

Betis only purchased him from Fluminense in the summer, but Luiz Henrique has already impressed with two goals and three assists in 18 competitive matches.

“Luiz is certainly a great talent. He is doing well, despite being very young and only just arriving in Europe,” agent Stefano Castagna told CalcioNapoli24.

“Obviously, it is a pleasure to be linked with Napoli, a great team with a strong club and top level sporting directors.

“However, there is nothing concrete with Napoli right now. Many big clubs are tracking him because he is truly a top player for his age.”

Luiz Henrique would be seen as a potential heir to Mexico international Hirving Lozano, who has been linked with a Premier League move.
