Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are all interested in signing Napoli’s Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and as per 90Min, as many as four EPL clubs scouted him during the international break.
Chelsea, Man United, Newcastle United and Manchester City scouts were in attendance during Georgia’s loss to Spain on Sunday and while there were several other important players on the pitch, the report suggests that the scouts were there to observe the 22-year-old winger.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia joined Napoli in 2022 and last season he was one of the sensations of the Serie A. He’s made a positive start to this campaign as well, scoring and assisting seven goals in 11 league matches which has automatically put him in everyone’s transfer wishlist.
Some of the biggest clubs in Europe are tracking him and now, it looks like several EPL clubs have also joined the bandwagon.
Will Kvaratskhelia leave Italy and move to the EPL?
Kvaratskhelia is currently valued at €85 million and his contract expires in 2027. However, Napoli very well understand his value which is why they have already offered him a new and improved deal.
The details of the contract are not known yet but as per the rumours, Napoli do not want to lose the winger after just one season which is why they are rewarding him with a significant pay rise.
As things stand, Napoli are clear they do not wish to part ways with the Georgian winger but with so many big clubs interested in him, it will be very hard for the Italians to hold onto him.
Champions League football will be the basic requirement to lure in a player like Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and out of the four EPL clubs, only Man City are guaranteed a top-four finish this season. Chelsea are sitting in the middle of the table while Man United and NUFC will have to really sweat it out to be able to make it into the top four.
It’s very hard to see Khvicha Kvaratskhelia move to the EPL next summer because clubs like Madrid and Barcelona have a firm interest in the 22-year-old and if they make a move then there’s no way an English club will even get a sniff in.
Also, a lot depends on the new contract because if the winger puts pen to paper then there’s no way Napoli will release him at the end of this campaign.
