Reigning Serie A champions Napoli have submitted an improved offer for highly-rated Spanish attacking midfielder Gabri Veiga.
The 21-year-old enjoyed a phenomenal breakthrough campaign at Celta Vigo last season: scoring 11 league goals, including two on the last day of the season against Barcelona, to help keep his hometown club in La Liga.
Gabri Veiga set for Napoli switch?
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Napoli have tabled a second, improved bid for the Spanish under-21 international and are confident they are edging closer to securing a deal before the European window slams shut on September 1.

Rafael Benitez’s Celta Vigo are happy to cash in on their star asset and want to find a solution before their next match which is a trip on Saturday to Champions League qualifiers Real Sociedad.
Star player Veiga was left out of Benitez’s first league match in charge at the weekend in order to avoid an injury that would potentially scupper a move this summer.
