Napoli will offer boss Walter Mazzarri a tempting new salary in an attempt to keep him at the Stadio San Paolo.
The tactician’s current deal expires in the summer and there were suggestions that he could bring his relationship with the club to an end.
However, the Gazzetta dello Sport is claiming that President Aurelio De Laurentiis will dig deep into his pockets in an effort to keep the former Sampdoria man.
It is being suggested that the movie mogul will offer the 51-year-old a two-year contract worth €3.5m a campaign.
Napoli are currently second in Serie A after maintaining their four-point lead over Milan with a 1-1 draw at Milan last night.
