Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam could be on his way back to Ligue 1 and agent Jorge Mendes is in ongoing talks with the club about a proposed move to LOSC Lille.
Il Mattino has claimed that the sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has been looking for a club that could take their player off their books, even if it’s only a loan deal for the remainder of the season.
The newspaper reveals that Lille are ready to bring the player back to France and the possibilities increase according to the report, because of the “great relationship” between the two clubs.
Les Dogues are first in line to snatch up the left-back, ahead of rivals Olympique Marseille and AS Monaco.
Ghoulam arrived from Saint-Etienne in January 2014, when the Azzurri paid €5m for his services and he has since played 179 games for the Partenopei.
During his spell at the San Paolo, the 28-year-old has lifted the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana.
