Napoli open talks for Barcelona fullback Junior Firpo

Barcelona fullback Junior Firpo is interesting Napoli.

Sport says Cristian Giuntoli, the club's sporting director, has asked Barcelona about Junior's current situation. He wanted to know first hand the news and Barcelona told him that Junior could go.

Napoli have positioned themselves in the race, although the economic crisis means it will be difficult to make a big offer for him. They have other options available but Junior will be the priority.

Napoli were hoping to loan him but Barcelona want a permanent sale. They would accept a transfer for 20m euros even if the payment needs to be delayed. No player exchanges were discussed.
