Gabri Veiga to join Napoli


A report from Italy suggests that Napoli are going to sign Celta Vigo talent Gabri Veiga for close to €40 million. The Partenopei are looking to bolster an ageing midfield and have already secured the services of Reims youngster Jenus Cajuste, and are set to secure their second signing in the coming week.

CalcioNapoli1926 journalist Gennaro Del Vecchio reports that Veiga will be a Napoli player very soon. The 21-year-old will reportedly arrived for close to €25 million plus a series of easily achievable bonuses.

Del Vecchio reports that Veiga will play his last game for Celta tomorrow against Osasuna before flying to Naples for medical visits next week.

The player will reportedly sign a five-year contract worth  €1.8 million plus bonuses, brining the total to almost €2 million a season.

Celra coach Rafa Benitez confirmed that there is a lot of interest in the young talent, saying:

“He has a situation, like other players from a lot of other teams, in that the transfer market is open, he has a release clause and there is a lot of talk about his leaving. He is a player that I like, he can score goals and help the team win, but the situation is what it is. That’s how the market goes and the interest in him is real.”

Veiga had a standout 2022-23 season, scoring 11 goals from midfield in 39 appearances for Celta.
