Napoli’s Algerian left-back Faouzi Ghoulam could well become a transfer target for French Ligue 1 side Monaco.
The principality club wants to have an offer in place which will be activated if defender Fabinho moves to Paris Saint-Germain.
Fabinho and teammate Kylian Mbappé have been linked with a move to PSG for a total fee in excess of €200m, with the Parisian side already spending €222m for Neymar.
According to Rai Sport, Monaco will try to sign the Fennec Foxes defender as a replacement for Fabinho, even though he plays on the opposite flank.
They add that the Partenopei are pushing to renew Ghoulam’s contract, and held a meeting on Monday.
A new deal has yet to be agreed, with Ghoulam set to become a free agent at the end of the current season.
