Napoli are aware of the demand for its star striker, Victor Osimhen. As such, the club is now focusing on securing the signing of Brighton wonderboy Julio Enciso next summer.
The Parteponei could see the departure of the Nigerian international even though no concrete offer has been made.
But the club is cautious about the situation around the striker. Also, to strengthen the squad, the Paraguayan would be an ideal candidate to allow for a proper squad rotation, according to Fichajes.net.
Julio Enciso, 19, is a promising forward who has made a difference for Brighton in the English Premier League, flourishing under the tutelage of Roberto De Zerbi.
One area that continues to impress the Italian club is the style of playing the South American, which perfectly fits the club’s vision.
Why does Napoli truly appreciate Julio Enciso and want him in 2024
We all know Victor Osimhen’s impact on the team, and losing him without a suitable replacement would be a disastrous move. As a result, the Paraguayan comes into the picture.
Enciso has a contract with Brighton & Hove Albion until the summer of 2026, with an estimated market value of around 40 million euros.
On the financial side, this would be achievable for the club as they could easily cough out 40 million euros or thereabouts to sign a forward, considering that they would earn more if they sell their star man in the summer.
Aside from that, Napoli are searching for young talents to strengthen their team for the future. For Enciso, a possible signing would help the club due to his style of play.
