The deal to bring James Rodríguez to Napol is progressing.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the agreement is very close on the basis on a €5 million loan plus €30 million option to buy.
Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli is in constant contact with Jorge Mendes and hopes to confirm the deal within 48 hours.
The Partenopei are also looking to complete a deal for Kostas Manolas.
Roma continue to ask for the €34 million release clause while Napoli will continue negotiations with or without Amadou Diawara involved.
