Man Utd could sign £40.5m-rated Serie A winger in January

Posted by

Manchester United are reportedly keeping tabs on the situation of Napoli versatile forward Hirving Lozano.

The Mexico international left Dutch giants, PSV Eindhoven for a £40.5m fee in the summer of 2019 to join the Partenopei and has appeared in 121 matches for the Serie A giants in all competitions since.

Lozano has scored 26 goals and provided 14 assists for Napoli in that time, helping his side to Coppa Italia glory during his inaugural 2019-20 campaign.

However, the 27-year-old is yet to finalise the full 90 minutes of a league match this campaign, having been largely overshadowed by the instant impact of Georgian talented forward Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Matteo Politano was also preferred on the right-hand side of the attack during Napoli’s 2-1 defeat to Scudetto holders AC Milan before the international break, with Lozano an unused substitute.

The ex-Pachuca starlet is also out of contract in Naples in the summer of 2024, leading to rumours that he could be sold within the next several months.

According to Marca – via Corriere dello Sport – Italian giants are willing to listen to offers for Lozano in January, and the Red Devils are among the clubs monitoring his situation.

The 20-times English champions will face stiff competition for the forward’s services, though, as Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and Everton are all eyeing up a potential winter swoop.

Mexico International forward has supposedly been left unhappy with his game time at Napoli this campaign, and he feels that he has firmly dropped behind Politano in Luciano Spalletti’s pecking order.

Bayern are believed to be the frountrunners to secure the services of the Mexican, who would command a fee of at least €30m (£26.9m) to depart from the Partenopei in the winter transfer window.
