Napoli chief Aurelio Del Laurentiis could buy English club Leyton Orient as a satellite side, Gazzetta dello Sport have claimed.
The Milan-based newspaper report that the Partenopei President has sounded out the League One team as one where he could send some of Napoli’s youngsters for first team experience.
De Laurentiis has seen the example set by the Pozzo family's Udinese, who are tied with Championship team Watford and Spanish club Granada.
It is unclear however, whether current Leyton Orient owner Barry Hearn would be willing to sell his east London side.
