British news website Daily Mail on Tuesday published an article about Napoli football club’s Georgian winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia that noted the team would need to fend off advances from Europe’s leading clubs for securing the services of the player.
In the piece, Alvise Cagnazzo noted the 22-year-old “adores Italian life and Napoli have taken the Georgian star to their heart as they chase historic Serie A title”, while also recognising the level of his performances.
