Napoli are lining up a £17million offer for Manchester United target Adam Ounas, according to reports in France.
The 19-year-old has emerged as one of the most exciting talents in French football following his break through into the Bordeaux first team last term.
Ounas finished the season with five goals in his 23 top-flight appearances, attracting the attention of Manchester United.
However, the teen ace has so far stayed put at Bordeaux, who want to keep hold of him for as long as possible.
But now, according to L’Equipe, Napoli are ready to test their resolve to retain him with a formal bid for his services.
The Serie A side are reportedly willing to pay £12.7m up front with the a further £4.3m in performance-related add-ons, and hand the youngster a lucrative five-year deal in Naples.
