Napoli is in hot pursuit of Oumar Solet

In the Napoli boardroom, there’s a lot of activity as they try to sign a young French defender. Oumar Solet is the man in question, and he’s reportedly being seriously courted by the Neapolitans.

After a disappointing spell at Olympique Lyonnais, Solet moved to Austria. He signed for Red Bull Salzburg in the summer of 2018 for €4.5 million, and he’s had time to grow and develop. Over the past three seasons, the Melun native has consistently put in solid performances that have caught the attention of clubs all over Europe, including in Italy. With a year left on his contract with the Austrian club, Napoli is positioning itself as a serious contender.

According to Footmercato, the Partenopei are impressed with the 23-year-old and are close to reaching an agreement with Salzburg for his transfer.

Taking the next step

It’s safe to say that Napoli is a perfect fit for Solet. He’s already aware of his own progress with the Austrian club, and he knows he can still take the next step.

In a recent interview, he said, “I’ve had some great years here, and I think I deserve to take the next step now.” He added, “I’m 23 years old, and I’m at a point in my career where I feel I need to move to the next level. Wherever that may be, I need to take that step. I have big ambitions, and I want to be one of the best players one day. So that means hard work and determination. I hope I can achieve my dreams, including playing for one of the biggest European clubs.”

The message has been heard loud and clear by Napoli, which now knows what it needs to do to bring Solet, who has 12 Champions League appearances to his name, into its ranks.
