Feyenoord rejected an initial bid of €6m for Daryl Janmaat from Italian club Napoli this weekend.

Janmaat’s performance for Feyenoord this season has attracted interest from various quarters and Napoli have become the first club to make a move for the Dutchman.

The Dutch side have slapped a transfer fee of €8m on Janmaat and are not ready to sell for anything less than the quoted figure, according to Tuttosport.

Napoli’s sporting director Riccardo Bigon was in Holland at the weekend and was trying to negotiate a transfer fee for Janmaat with Feyenoord.


However, the Italians may also safe stiff competition from English club Arsenal, who have also kept a close eye on the full-back and may well make their move after Napoli started the bidding process.

The 24-year-old has turned himself into a crucial cog in Louis van Gaal’s Dutch national side and is expected to play a crucial role in Holland’s World Cup campaign this summer.

Holland travel to Brazil later this week and Napoli or Arsenal will have to move quickly if they want to conclude a deal for Janmaat before the summer’s big event.
