Napoli have been rebuffed in an attempt for Benjamin Pavard

France Football are reporting that Napoli have been rebuffed in an attempt to sign French international defender Benjamin Pavard from VfB Stuttgart.

The 2nd-placed Serie A side made a formal enquiry for the 22-year-old, with manager Carlo Ancelotti understood to be desperate to reinforce in the centre back position. The website of the magazine claims that Pavard was not interested in the move.

Bayern Munich remain in the hunt for the Frenchman, but the report reckons that the Bundesliga champions will wait until next summer to pounce, claiming that Pavard at that point will have a €35m release clause in his contract that could be activated.
