Napoli coach, Carlo Ancelotti has shared that his team has held talks with Lille winger Nicolas Pepe and his interest in the talented footballer is not a secret.
Ancelotti added that he is also keen on Colombia midfielder, James Rodriguez as he searches for a new club after ending his loan with Bayern Munich.
Pepe has been tipped to quit Lille and Napoli look to be in the driving seat after the player’s agents visited the club’s training camp today.
Speaking on the move recently, Carlo said, “They were in our hotel,
I said hello, as I did with all the agents who came here.
“Obviously, we are interested in Pepe, his agents are here and there’s no point hiding that. Negotiations are in progress and we’ll see what happens.
“Pepe is a wide attacking player. We want to find someone who can play between the lines, but also strong with his feet.”
On James, he said, “Real Madrid want to sell and Napoli want to sign him. There is no optimism or pessimism. There are players who interest us and we’ll see what happens.”
