Napoli agree contract extension with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia amid growing interest

Napoli have reportedly struck an agreement with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia over a one-year contract extension.

As reported by Foot Mercato, the Partenopei have agreed to extend the Georgian’s contract until 2028 and raise his wages from €1.5 million to €4m, including bonuses.

The Partenopei have ended the rumours linking him with an exit this summer amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The report also adds that Napoli are unwilling to listen to offers for the prodigious winger until 2024.

Kvaratskhelia hit the ground running in his debut season in Serie A, making his mark as one of the best wingers in Eesent.

A prolific return of 14 goals and 16 assists, combined with some breathtaking performances, have earned him the nickname Kvaradona, after legendary Diego Maradona.

The Georgian youngster has formed a prolific partnership with Victor Osimhen in attack, with the latter leading the Serie A scoring charts with 21 goals.

Both players have been pivotal in Napoli’s remarkable run this season, with Luciano Spalletti’s side currently at the top of Serie A and in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Like Kvaratskhelia, Osimhen is highly sought-after, with several top European clubs hot on his trail.

Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG are keen on the Nigerian international, who would cost around €120m.

However, the Partenopei are maximising their efforts to keep the striker beyond the summer, although he appears not to be ready to commit his future to the club.
