Serie A News… Napoli look to bolster squad with Wolfsburg defender

By on January 20, 2011 - 34 views

Italian centre-back Andrea Barzagli is a target for title chasing Napoli, who currently need defensive cover in the wake of Gianluca Grava’s injury, which seems to have ended his season.

Napoli, who have been in sparkling form thus far, have 37 points in the race for the Scudetto, 4 points away from leaders AC Milan. However, they are urgently seeking a replacement for Grava and it seems that Barzagli fits the mould.

Barzagli, 29, a player who has 25 Italy caps and is a Bundesliga winner, is set to become one of the casualties of an overhaul taking place at Vfl Wolsburg under former England Manager Steve McClaren. His experience and availability are tempting a cautious Napoli side who are determined not to upset the momentum that has taken them so far this campaign, and it is possible that they will try a £4m introductory offer at some stage this week.

The player, who is also a target for Juventus and Roma, could be exactly what Napoli need to boost their title challenge.
