Napoli are interested in £20 million Arsenal star who has already played in Italy before moving to England. Jakub Kiwior who Arsenal signed in January 2023, may be leaving the Emirates only after one and half year at the club. New Napoli boss Antonio Conte appreciates Kiwior and wants him at the club. However Kiwior is also appreciated by Arteta and this may make his transfer very interesting.

Arsenal came very close to getting their hands on Premier League trophy after a very long time. However, they failed to win it only by a fine margin of two points. Mikel Arteta was not impressed at all by Oleksandr Zinchenko’s performances who seems on his way out this summer. As a result, Arteta used Kiwior as a left back. Kiwior who is primarily a left sided centre back made 20 premier league appearances. However he was not very effective in left back position due to lack of attacking instincts.

Sporting director Edu along with Arteta are looking for a natural full back which can assure Kiwior a position as centre defender if he stays. However he won’t be able to be a regular starter as the pairing of Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba has proved very effective for the club. According to reports, Napoli are one of the few clubs willing to achieve the services of Polish international.

Napoli interested in Arsenal star

Napoli began the 2023/24 season as Serie A champions. However it turned out to be a very poor season for the former champions as they finished on 10th position and missing all of the European competitions. As a result many of their important stars are on their way out. Victor Osimhen was heavily linked with Arsenal but the London club find his price way to high. Napoli have announced Antonio Conte as their new manager who admires Arsenal’s defender.

Napoli are keen to sign Jakub Kiwior. However they haven’t sent any offer yet to North London. Along with Napoli two other Italian clubs are also interested in Kiwior. However signing him won’t be an easy process as Arteta has his trust in Polish international.
