CHELSEA are scouting Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia ahead of the January window, according to transfer insider Dean Jones has revealed.

We are keen to sign The Napoli attacker after he garnered massive attention after a thunderous campaign for the Italian heavyweights guiding them to the Scudetto last season.

He was named as the league’s Player of the Season. So impressive were his performances that he has been nicknamed ‘Kvaradona’, a nod to Napoli’s Argentinian great Diego Maradona.

Recognising that interest from Chelsea and other Premier League sides, transfer insider Jones admitted that Kvaratskhelia was unlikely to stick around in Italy for too much longer.

“There is lots of hype building around Kvaratskhelia and as soon as you see him play it is easy to understand why. There are very few players in world football who have made the impact he made at Napoli and he continues to show consistency.

“When you’ve got the likes of CHELSEA and Man City on similar scouting missions you know there is something special going on – and I do believe that both clubs really like him. I have to say though that nothing is going to happen in January in terms of a transfer and even in the summer this is going to remain a difficult deal. Napoli are looking to bounce back from a bad start to this season and they don’t want to lose him and Victor Osimhen in the same year.

“At the moment it has to be said that Osimhen is closer to a big transfer and I think he will be the first to go…so that might mean Kvaratskhelia has to wait a while for an exit.”
