André-Frank Zambo Anguissa’s loan from Fulham to Napoli has worked out great for the Partenopei side. It’s now understood that the club will move to make the deal permanent according to journalist Valter De Maggio.
Anguissa’s loan to Naples has proven a masterstroke, with the defensive midfielder has already become an integral part of Luciano Spalletti’s tactics. The Cameroonian has made 14 appearances in all competitions for Napoli this season.
Fulham, who is currently fighting for promotion back in the Premier League, is said to have asked for €15m in order to make the deal permanent. Napoli has paid just €500,000 for the loan deal so far. The initial offer is said to have met with a refusal from Napoli’s officials.
Now, according to journalist Valter De Maggio, a more sensible deal looks to be on the cards. De Maggio told Kiss Kiss Napoli that negotiations are likely to continue this winter and that the full transfer will be made official next June.
There have been reports that another Premier League side, Crystal Palace has also approached Fulham for a potential transfer. Although Palace has been playing well this season under the management of Patrick Vieira, according to De Maggio, Napoli is anxious to meet Fulham’s demands and continue to have Anguissa as one of the team’s standout players.
