Serie A giants Napoli are interested in getting their hands on Leicester City midfielder Boubakary Soumare, who is currently on loan at Sevilla, according to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira.


Soumare joined Sevilla on loan from Leicester last summer after the Foxes were relegated from the Premier League.


He has emerged as a key player in a struggling Sevilla side and has made 14 appearances in all competitions for the club.




His performances have piqued the interest of other clubs who are looking for a midfielder in January.


It has been claimed that Napoli are considering moving for the Leicester midfielder in the winter window.



The Serie A giants are looking at several midfielders in the market in their search for a player next month.


Soumare’s performances in Spain have impressed Napoli and the club are plotting a move for him.



They would have to convince Leicester to cut short Soumare’s loan at Sevilla after selling the move to the player himself.


It remains to be seen whether Soumare would be open to a move given he is playing regularly at Sevilla.
