Agent talks up Napoli as destination for Bayern Munich winger Shaqiri

The agent of Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri admits he's been blocked from joining Napoli

Napoli want to take the Swiss on-loan in January.

"I spoke with Napoli about Shaqiri," Ulises Savini told Radio CRC.

"However, Bayern Munich won't accept a loan deal.

"Shaqiri hasn't played much in the last two years, so it's a possibility [moving to Napoli]. He's less of a winger than [Lorenzo] Insigne, his characteristics are similar to [Dries] Mertens.

"Shaqiri could play for any Italian team, but I think Napoli are among the most suitable names."
