AS Roma, Napoli vying for Alban Lafont

Serie A rivals AS Roma and Napoli are said to be both keen on FC Toulouse goalkeeping talent Alban Lafont.

The 19-year-old French talent has emerged as one of the hottest young goalkeepers in Europe this season.

Lafon managed 12 clean sheets for Toulouse in 32 competitive outings this term and his flying form has already alarmed the host of Europe’s biggest clubs.

French media outlet L’Equipe has reported that AS Roma and Napoli have come forward to make their interest known with both clubs looking to sign the youngster once the transfer window reopens this summer.

Partenopei are reportedly preparing a €10 million offer plus bonuses for the custodian who’s under contract with the French outfit until 2020.

Napoli face a tough competition for Lafont’s signature however with AS Roma keeping an eye on the goalkeeper who is viewed as a quality alternative for Liverpool target Alisson.

Elsewhere around the continent, Arsenal, Newcastle United Watford and by some claims even Real Madrid are also keeping a close tab on the Toulouse talent.
