Mercato: Rudi Garcia wants a former OL player at Napoli
Relegated to the German second division with Hertha Berlin, former Lyon striker Lucas Tousart is being courted by Rudi Garcia's Napoli.
An indisputable regular at Hertha Berlin, whom he joined in 2020 from OL for 25 million euros, Lucas Tousart (26) could leave the German club, which has just been relegated to the second tier of the German top flight.
Towards a Tousart - Demme swap?
According to Sky Sports DE, Napoli are very interested in the French defensive midfielder, who would be reunited in Italy with his former OL coach Rudi Garcia. According to the source, the two clubs are in talks about a potential swap between Tousart and German defensive midfielder Diego Demme. Napoli could also add a sum of money to the deal. Further negotiations are expected between the parties.
