ALBION defender Leo Ostigard has been linked with a move to Serie A giants Napoli.

The Norweigan defender is currently playing his football in Italy after he made a loan switch to Genoa in January.

Ostigard has shown some good signs since moving to I Rossoblu and has helped them in the battle against relegation. While the club are still in the bottom three, Ostigard has been a part of the improving backline, which has kept their survival hopes alive.

Napoli are now reportedly interested in signing the Albion man as part of a squad rebuild should they sell striker Victor Osimhen this summer, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

It is reported that the Nigerian striker could be sold to Manchester United as part of Erik ten Hag's rebuild for a fee of €110 million

Ostigard's deal at Albion is set to expire at the end of the season and he would be able to move to Napoli on a free transfer if a contract extension is not agreed upon.

The Italian club are also suggested to be interested in signing Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca, Bologna's Mattias Svanberg and Hella Verona midfielder Antonin Barak.

Genoa's general manager, Johannes Spors, claimed Leo Ostigard "wants to stay" with the Italian outfit, however, should the club be relegated it could be hard to convince the 22-year-old to stay.
