Napoli attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is being watched by Manchester City, according to a report.

Manchester City are reportedly closely monitoring the form of Napoli attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

The 21-year-old has been in impressive form for his Italian side during the 2022-23 campaign, scoring nine goals and registering 12 assists in 20 appearances in all competitions.

Kvaratskhelia scored twice and registered three assists in five outings in the group stage of the Champions League, as Napoli finished top of Group A ahead of Liverpool.

The Georgia international has also been in strong form in Serie A this term, scoring seven goals and contributing nine assists in 15 appearances, with the Blues nine points clear at the top of the table.

Napoli have not won Serie A since 1990, but they are in a strong position to triumph this term, and they put down a marker by thumping Juventus 5-1 in their last league fixture.

Kvaratskhelia scored Napoli’s second against Juventus, and the performances of the attacker this season has led to a host of speculation surrounding his future.

According to the Daily Mail, Man City are one of the clubs most interested in his signature, with the English champions monitoring his performances this season.

A January deal would be almost impossible, but there have been suggestions that Gli Azzurri would be open to discussing a summer exit, providing that the price was right.

The forward joined Napoli from Dinamo Batumi last July, penning a five-year contract with the club.

There have been claims that the Serie A giants are keen to discuss a new deal, but the Georgian’s father recently revealed that there had not yet been any talks over a fresh contract.

“Nobody has spoken to us about the contract yet. At this stage, Khvicha doesn’t even think about it, he only thinks about playing. Khvicha is informed about market rumours, but it doesn’t influence him at all,” Read more – Sports Mole
