Lyon invite Napoli to bid for Fred

Olympique Lyon have offered rebel striker Fred to Napoli.

The Brazil international has butted heads with management in the last week and his agents have already issued a media release declaring the player is ready to leave Lyon before the market shuts on August 31.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is desperate to deliver fans a big-name striker signing for their return to Serie A and can sign Fred for £7 million, says Corriere dello Sport. De Laurentiis will have to cough up big, however, to cover Fred's wage demands - believed to be £1.5 million-a-year.
