With Gonzalo Higuain and Pepe Reina undergoing medicals today, Napoli are also bidding for Jackson Martinez and Maxime Gonalons.
The Partenopei are eager to spend the €63m earned from Edinson Cavani’s sale to Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Sky Sport Italia, their spending spree is nowhere near over, as Coach Rafa Benitez has more names on his wish-list.
Jackson Martinez is the prime target after scoring a remarkable 33 goals in 43 games in all competition last season for Porto and Colombia.
He netted 26 in 30 Primeira Liga matches and his price-tag is thought to be at least €35m.
“The problem is that the clause in his contract is between €35m and €40m, so with Higuain’s arrival I doubt Napoli would want to spend that much on another very similar striker,” Italian agent Salvatore Fiore told TMW.
“However, the two could co-exist. Jackson is a forward who can start from a deeper position, so he could play alongside Higuain.”
The other transfer target emerging is Lyon midfielder Gonalons, who had already been linked with Napoli in recent weeks.
