Napoli have run riot so far in Serie A this season. With 21 games having been played so far in the Italian League, the Partenopei sit atop the standings with a gargantuan 56 points to their name. They have scored 51 goals in that duration and lost just one game.
The whole team has been operating at a very high level, and Victor Osimhen, Khvicha Khvaratskhelia and Stanislav Lobotka are some of the many names to have stood in the spotlight. According to reports from Fichajes, the third player is of interest to Real Madrid.
Lobotka enters the equation at this point, as one of Serie A’s experienced, established options. The report states that Ancelotti would be ‘delighted’ if the midfielder arrived at Real Madrid in the summer.
The 28-year-old is capable of playing both as a defensive and central midfielder based on the need and has the versatility that Ancelotti demands. Given that just over two years remain on his deal, the time to negotiate a transfer seems to be right.
Valued at €60 million by Napoli, it will be interesting to see if Real Madrid decide to make a play for his signing come summer.
