Napoli have moved back ahead of Bologna in the race for Cagliari midfielder Godfred Donsah, whose asking price is €10m.
The 19-year-old impressed in his debut Serie A season and also earned interest from Juventus, Chelsea and Fiorentina.
According to Sky Sport Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport, Cagliari director Stefano Capozucca met with Napoli chief Cristiano Giuntoli again today.
The Partenopei are now the favourites ahead of newly-promoted Bologna, but that could easily change.
Bologna are prepared to pay the full fee upfront, whereas Napoli are trying to take him on loan with option to buy.
Coach Maurizio Sarri sees Donsah as a good replacement for Gokhan Inler, who today was sold to Leicester City.
