Napoli to pay release clause for Fenerbahce’s Kim

Napoli are reportedly on the verge of signing defender Kim Min-Jae from Fenerbahce as they close in on an agreement with the player.

Gianluca Di Marzio details how the Partenopei are working hard to finalise the final details of a deal with the Turkish club this morning and they were in talks with the Korean centre back’s entourage regarding image rights and agent commissions. 

Napoli are close to fully agreeing personal terms with Kim, and after this they can exercise the release clause set by Fenerbahce. A few final bureaucratic details remain but a deal is all but certain now.

The 25-year-old Korean, alongside fellow new arrival Leo Ostigard, is a much-needed addition to Luciano Spalletti’s defence following the €40m sale of Kalidou Koulibaly to Chelsea last week.

Kim shone last season in Turkey and many expect great things of the Korean in his debut season in Italy. Rennes were also keen to pick up the 25-year-old defender but they ultimately lost out to Napoli.

    Koulibaly is better than any italian CB from the last decade. Most italian talent nowadays sucks. Romagnoli, Rugani are all flops
