Real Madrid enquire about Napoli’s Stanislav Lobotka

Foot Mercato are reporting that Real Madrid have are very interested in Napoli midfielder Stanislav Lobotka (28), who is valued between €60-70m by the Serie A club. 

Lobotka has only recently extended his Napoli contract and has committed to the Serie A table-toppers until 2027. However, the former Celta Vigo man, who arrived from Spain for €20m in 2020, has high-profile suitors. Real Madrid are looking to further strengthen their youthful-looking midfield, despite the €100m arrival of Aurélien Tchouaméni in the summer. 

However, both Toni Kroos (32) and Luka Modrić (37) are nearing the end of their careers, and the reigning Champions League champions are looking to add an extra element into the mix. Real Madrid have already made contact with Napoli over a move for Lobotka. According to Foot Mercato, the price quoted by Napoli is perhaps higher than Carlo Ancelotti would have hoped. It remains to be seen whether Real Madrid will table an official offer.
