Napoli offer €5m plus Blerim Dzemaili to prise Swiss international Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach.
According to Swiss media Ticinonline, the 21-year-old midfielder caught the eye of Coach Rafa Benitez during the World Cup.
His contract is due to expire in June 2015, so Borussia Monchengladbach need to sell now or risk losing him on a free transfer next year.
It’s reported the proposal is €5m cash plus ownership of another Swiss international midfielder, Dzemaili.
Xhaka would join Swiss captain Gokhan Inler and Valon Behrami at the Stadio San Paolo.
