AC Milan are watching on as Khvicha Kvaratskhelia continues to shine with Napoli, having held talks to sign him a couple of years ago.
Kvaratskhelia is already looking like one of the signings of the summer as he tore Liverpool’s right side apart in Napoli’s 4-1 win over Liverpool last night, without forgetting the four goals he has scored in Serie A already.
Calciomercato.com report the background on the Georgian’s arrival at Napoli, with their sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli strongly believing that he could replace the huge gap left by Lorenzo Insigne’s exit.
He arrived from Dinamo Batumi for €10m but it is potentially two years later than he could have done. Juventus director Fabio Paratici had practically secured him from Rubin Kazan but his farewell to Juventus caused a very well planned operation to collapse. Paratici also tried to sign him for Spurs but via a loan formula that was not deemed to be enough.
Milan, back in the summer of 2020, had tested the ground with its entourage without launching a concrete bid to sign him. Napoli believed in him and now they are enjoying watching a talent take off.
