Newcastle and Chelsea in Khvicha Kvaratskhelia transfer blow with Napoli set to hand wing wonderkid mega new deal | The Sun

NAPOLI are reportedly planning to offer wing wizard Khvicha Kvaratskhelia a bumper new deal.

The 22-year-old Georgian maestro has scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in 26 games in all competitions this season.

And the Italian outfit want to double his salary by the end of the campaign, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The news comes as a blow to a number of Premier League sides.

Newcastle are reportedly interested in his signature following his stunning season so far in Serie A.

Kvaratskhelia was also linked with Chelsea towards the end of last year.

Elsewhere, the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are rumoured to be keen on the winger.

Gazzetta claim several unnamed Prem teams, plus Madrid, are "ready to pay" up to £88million for Kvaratskhelia.

But Napoli will reportedly sit down with his representatives at the end of the campaign and offer a deal worth £2.2million-a-season, plus bonuses, until 2028.

That works out at around £42,000-a-week before add-ons.

His current salary is reported by Gazzetta to be around £20k-a-week.

Kvaratskhelia only joined Napoli from Georgian side Dinamo Batumi last summer for just £8.8m, and his current deal expires in 2027.

He has helped Napoli to a runaway lead in Serie A, with Luciano Spalletti's side 18 points clear at the top of the table.

The Italians are also well placed to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League following a 2-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash.
