Napoli smash transfer record

Napoli have smashed their transfer record with the signing of Mexican winger Hirving Lozano in a deal worth a reported €40 million from PSV Eindhoven.

Napoli have pursued the 24-year-old for weeks after missing out on their number one target Nicolas Pépé, who eventually joined Arsenal in a mammoth £72m deal.
 
The club's previous transfer record holder was Gonzalo Higuain, whom they forked out €39m for in 2013 from Real Madrid, before his shock €90m switch to domestic rivals Juventus three years later.
 
 
The Mexico winger has signed a five-year deal with the Italian club worth around €4.5m per year, and I Partenopei have reportedly added a release clause to the contract which would stand at around €130m.
 
In his two years with PSV, Lozano managed to rack up 40 goals and 23 assists in 79 appearances across all competitions.
