According to the local source, the Parthenopean club would like to sign the Mozambican international (16 caps/2 goals) on loan with an option to buy for 8 million euros. Arrived from Belenenses in 2019 against 3 million euros, the 27-year-old defender would be worth today 9 million euros according to Transfermarkt. His transfer from Lille is possible as he has only one year left on his contract. The French champion could sell him this summer for fear of seeing him leave for free in a year. If he signs for Napoli, he could reunite with Nigerian Victor Osimhen, who left LOSC last summer for a record fee.
