Napoli closing Grimaldo deal ahead of selling Ghoulam to Man Utd or Man City

Napoli fullback Faouzi Ghoulam is being linked with Manchester United and Manchester City.

Tuttosport says Napoli are close to agreeing a £27m fee for Benfica defender Alejandro Grimaldo.

And once the transfer is completed in the summer, Ghoulam, 26, will be allowed to leave Naples.

The Algeria full-back has been tracked by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola since he impressed at the Etihad in the Champions League in October.

But rivals United are said to be a more likely destination.

Ghoulam signed a new five-year contract at the Stadio San Paolo just last month.
