Di Marzio: Napoli ready to pay €25m clause and sign Salzburg star – Milan and Arsenal stunned

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan target Dominik Szoboszlai is closing in on a move to Serie A rivals Napoli as they look set to pay his release clause, it is claimed.

We reported on Tuesday via Vito Angele that Szoboszlai is on Rangnick’s wish list and the German has received reassurances from the club. The Rossoneri have already been in contact with the agent, collecting the player’s approval.

SportMediaset claimed on Monday that the Rossoneri are ‘very close’ to signing the Hungary international at the request of Ralf Rangnick, who will be the new manager heading into next season.

However, according to what Gianluca Di Marzio has told the Sky Calcio Show (via MilanNews), the Napoli management will meet the player’s entourage during the week and intend to pay his €25m release clause.

They believe that the Hungarian midfielder is the perfect heir to Allan who looks set to be sold this summer, while Di Marzio adds that Szoboszlai had been close to Milan in January with Boban offer making an offer.

The 19-year-old has also been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli and Lazio.
