The left-footed Spezia defender was pivotal in his country’s run to the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar, and his impressive performances have garnered interest from top European clubs.
The 22-year-old is liked by several clubs in the Premier League, while Serie A giants Juventus, AC Milan and Napoli are also keen.
The Rossoneri were close to reaching an agreement to sign the defender last summer, but a transfer never materialised despite holding talks with the player’s entourage.
Juventus were also strongly interested in making a January move for the defender, but their legal problems have effectively ruled them out of the race.
Serie A league leaders Napoli are now at the forefront of the race for the defender.
Spezia had frozen all discussions for Kiwior because they were convinced the World Cup would increase the player’s valuation.
They reportedly wanted €15 million, but after his impressive displays in Qatar, the relegation-threatened club are now demanding up to €20m, including bonuses.
Kiwior has been a mainstay in the Spezia defence since joining the club from Slovakian side MSK Zilina for around €2m last summer.
He made 31 appearances across all competitions for Spezia in his debut campaign and has been a regular in the side this season, featuring 17 times.
He has been solid for his side, winning 69 percent of his aerial duels and completing 67 percent of his dribbles. He also boasts an impressive 1.5 interceptions per game.
Napoli are looking to strengthen their side as they chase the Scudetto this season, and Spezia will be looking to make a considerable profit from the defender in the winter transfer market.
