Albion have fielded “several bids” for Leo Ostigard – as his widely anticipated move to Napoli remains on hold.

The Serie A giants are known to be keen on the Norwegian international defender at the right price.

But some reports from Italy suggest agreement with the Seagulls is a little way off yet.

It still appears Ostigard, who has never played for Albion in the Premier League, will be on his way this summer.

But his final destination had still not been settled as of yesterday.

A well-placed source told The Argus the 22-year-old has been “subject to several bids and a lot of interest”.

The process of securing Ostigard a new club is said to be ongoing.

He was allowed on loan to Stoke City last summer when many fans expected him to be given a chance with the Seagulls after Ben White moved to Arsenal.

Graham Potter has shown no signs of bringing him into his Prem plans and Ostigard is keen for first-team football after half a season as a regular with Genoa.

Torino are believed to be among the clubs interested in him.

Napoli are reported to be offering about £3.5 million for Ostigard and have also been linked with Min-Jae Kim after a decent first season in Turkey at Fenerbahce .

One Italian report went as far as naming the area of Naples in which it claimed Ostigard had chosen to live once his move had been completed.
