Napoli back in on Benfica left back Grimaldo

Benfica Blog
Napoli are back in on Benfica left back Alex Grimaldo based on reports coming out of Italian publication Calciomercato. Napoli who were linked with Grimaldo during the summer transfer window want to land Grimaldo as soon as the January transfer window opens but Benfica would not let the 24 year old leave the club for any less then €40M price tag. Benfica and Napoli's summer talks also included Portuguese left back Mario Rui coming the other way in any deal between the clubs for Grimaldo but Benfica would be more inclined to make that deal now with youngster Nuno Tavares waiting in the wings. 

Benfica acquired Grimaldo from Barcelona during the winter transfer window of 2016 for what is now a bargain price of €2.1M. The Spaniard has appeared in 131 games for the club across all competitions scoring seven times while setting up twenty three goals. Benfica may also choose to hold onto Grimaldo until the summer transfer window where the likes of Barcelona and Juventus' could make a move for the player after also being linked to Benfica's left back. Grimaldo has been called by some as the next Jordi Alba and Benfica will do their best to maximize any return for their starting left back
