Roma and Napoli battle for Umtiti


Lyon defender Samuel Umtiti is in the middle of a mercato clash between Roma and Napoli, IlSussidiario.net reports.

Injuries and form problems in the defence are worrying both Napoli and Roma at this point and, reportedly, both clubs are closely following Umtiti (21), a young French centre back. It is reported that the French side have set a €10 million price tag for the defender.

However, Lyon are trying their best to keep the defender at the club for the current season, so it is likely that he will only move in the summer.
