Napoli have confirmed the arrival of Brazilian centre-back Natan Bernardo De Souza from Red Bull Bragantino on a five-year contract. The Partenopei have been eyeing a replacement for Kim Min-Jae in recent weeks and moved quickly to secure Natan for a reported €10 million transfer fee.
The 22-year-old began his youth career with Flamengo before making a loan move to RB Bragantino in 2021, with the move being made permanent in 2022. Two impressive seasons in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A was enough to convince Napoli of his quality, and the club have now confirmed his signing via a statement on their official website:
