Napoli have re-ignited their interest in Fenerbahce centre back Kim Min-Jae and talks have reportedly been re-established in the last few days.
The Partenopei are looking to strengthen the defence available to Luciano Spalletti this summer and they’re preparing for the possible departure of Kalidou Koulibaly, who currently hasn’t agreed a contract renewal.
As detailed by TuttoMercatoWeb, Napoli re-started negotiations with Fenerbahce earlier this week, still keen to pick up Kim Min-Jae. The biggest obstacle for now is the Turkish club’s valuation; they want around €15-20m for the 25-year-old Korean centre back.
The deal is being carried out in tandem with the Leo Ostigard operation. A deal with Brighton is likely to be reached soon for the 22-year-old Norwegian defender.
Kim Min-Jae joined Fenerbahce last summer from Chinese side BJ Guoan in a deal worth around €3m. He shined in his debut season in Turkey, scoring one goal and showing his defensive qualities in 39 appearances across all competitions.
