Serie A giants Napoli have moved to confirm rumours linking the Azzurri with a move for Hajduk Split midfielder Josip Radosevic.
After Paolo Cannavaro and Gianluca Grava were slapped with six-month bans, club officials have been very busy trying to find replacements for the experienced defender, but everybody at the club was glad to hear that the player had been cleared of all charges.
Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon admitted that they are no longer in need of defensive reinforcements, but did admit interest in Croatian hotshot Josip Radosevic.
“Radosevic? He is an interesting player that we spotted almost a year ago,” Biggon told Marte Sport Live.
“He is a class of ’94, and is an objective for the future. He is certainly very interesting.”
Radosevic, 18, has exploded onto the biggest stage this season and has already seen his name linked with top European clubs.
The holding midfielder has made 24 appearances for Hajduk Split this season, and was even handed a full Croatia debut in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Belgium.
Radosevic is seen as one of the most talented players in European football and it won’t be long before he joins a top European side.
