Napoli want to take over Aston Villas Axel Tuanzebe loan


Napoli have reached out to Manchester United in hopes of taking over Axel Tuanzebe’s loan deal with Aston Villa.

The 24-year-old is on a season-long loan at Villa Park but has not played as much as he would have liked. He started the season as a regular starter but has only seen eight minutes of Premier League action during Villa’s last seven games since Steven Gerrard’s arrival.

With Tuanzebe’s season fast declining, Gianluca Di Marzio notes that Napoli are keen to give him a fresh start.

Napoli have been in contact with United and Tuanzebe’s camps to see if there would be an opportunity to take over his loan contract, with Partenopei eager to agree to an option to buy the 24-year-old who is not present in his current Villa deal. .

So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is why United. If they do not have a clause in Tuanzebe’s contract that allows them to recall him, then Villa must agree to relieve the defender as well.

Napoli is in something of a crisis as a midfielder. Kalidou Koulibaly is away with a thigh injury and will likely fly to the African Cup of Nations when he returns next month, while Kostas Manolas leaves to join Olympiacos when the transfer window opens.

It will leave Luciano Spalletti’s title fighter with just two recognized midfielders – Amir Rrahmani and Juan Jesus, the latter of whom is largely seen as an emergency backup.

It is suggested that Napoli want Tuanzebe to fill in along with Rrahmani while Koulibaly is away with Senegal, before competing with the Kosovo national team later in the campaign.

Tuanzebe will remain under contract with United until the summer of 2023, but he is said to be keen to leave Old Trafford at the end of the ongoing campaign in the hunt for regular A-team football.

A graduate of United’s famous academy, Tuanzebe has only managed 37 games for the club during his five seasons as a senior player.

He is currently on his third loan spell with Villa but has not yet matched the successes of his previous periods at the club.
