Napoli are keen to take Raul Meireles from Chelsea.
The Italian side have lost star midfielder Ezequiel Lavezzi this summer, with the Argentine last week completing a £26million move to Paris St Germain.
A replacement is now sought before the start of the new season, and widespread reports suggest Portugal international Meireles fits the bill.
The 29-year-old has spent the past two years in England at Liverpool and Chelsea, and the Azzurri would look to take him for around £8million.
