Alejandro Grimaldo

According to Calciomercato, Napoli could offer €25m plus Mario Rui to sign left-back Alejandro Grimaldo from Benfica.

The Partenopei are set on a summer swoop for the 23-year-old Spaniard this season after he contributed seven goals and 13 assists in 54 competitive for the ‎Primeira Liga club.

Napoli targeted Grimaldo last year, but were unable to make the transfer negotiations work.

However, Mario Rui could be the key, as Benfica are interested in bringing him back to Portugal, although it remains to be seen how much they will value him as part of this deal.

Grimaldo’s price-tag is €40m, so Napoli hope Mario Rui plus €25m cash will get them to that sum.
