Napoli are battling Inter, Juventus and Tottenham for Genoa forward Albert Gudmundsson, claim Sky Sport Italia, as the bidding war hots up.

The Iceland international has been a sensation in his debut Serie A season, scoring 14 goals and providing three assists in 33 games.

He was purchased from AZ Alkmaar for just €1.5m in January 2022 and helped the Grifone to first promotion, then mid-table comfort.

Napoli step up for Gudmundsson

Inter had been the favourites to sign him this summer, but now Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Napoli are diving in with an offer.

They hope to anticipate the others and stave off competition, although they are not helped by the uncertainty over their new coach and possibly missing out on European qualification.

Juventus can afford to make a bid now they have guaranteed a place in the Champions League, with Di Marzio suggesting they will include midfielders Fabio Miretti and Enzo Barrenechea in the deal to lower the cost of the operation.

Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are among the Premier League clubs linked with Gudmundsson.
