Napoli considering Mario Hermoso as defensive option


Napoli have added Atletico Madrid’s Mario Hermoso as a potential candidate to help strengthen their defence this summer. The 28-year-old was recently linked with a move to Juventus, but talks between the two clubs did not progress.

Sky Sport Italia detail how Napoli are now interested in the Spanish defender, but negotiations are not yet advanced, with the primary challenge being Hermoso’s high salary.

According to the report, negotiations for the defender are still in the preliminary phases. The next few days will be crucial for determining the financial details of the operation. The main hurdle is not the commission fees but the player’s high salary demands.

Hermoso recently completed his fifth consecutive season with Atletico Madrid, where he has been a regular starter. This past season, he made 45 appearances across La Liga, Copa del Rey, Champions League, and the Spanish Supercup.
