Napoli open Udinese talks for midfield powerhouse Lazar Samardzic

Napoli have made a move for Udinese midfield powerhouse Lazar Samardzic.

The 20 year-old only moved to the Zebrette last year from RB Leipzig and has been a revelation under coach Andrea Sottil this season.

Udinese are willing to sell the 20-year-old but would prefer to keep him until the end of the season.

Daniele Longo, of Calciomercato.com, reports Napoli have opened talks with Udinese about a January deal for Samardzic.

This season, Samardzic has scored three goals and provided one assist for Udinese, finding the back of the net against both Roma and Napoli.
