Napoli are interested in Galatasaray winger Bruma according to NTV.

The Serie A outfit are reported to be considering a six-month loan for the Portuguese international who has failed to secure a regular place in the Galatasaray first team.

Bruma has been linked with a move abroad after falling down the pecking order at Galatasaray and only making seven appearances this season.

Everton are also reported to be interested in Bruma and came close to signing the Portuguese international this summer.

Galatasaray board member Abdurrahim Albayrak however, underlined that the club want to keep hold of Bruma.

“Bruma is a very promising, young player,” Albayrak said.

“However, he has to be patient, we are trying to work around a foreign player ban and this is having a negative effect on the league. 

“We have not given up on Bruma and Bruma has not given up on us.”

Galatasaray signed the highly rated winger from Sporting Lisbon for €10 million on a five-year contract last season.

Despite being included in the 2014 Golden Boy shortlist, Bruma has been unable to impress Prandelli.
