Napoli have joined Udinese in their pursuit of Juventus midfielder Michele Pazienza, his agent has revealed.
The player could leave Turin before the January transfer window closes tomorrow and his former clubs are keen.
It was thought that Udinese were in pole position for his signature, but the Azzurri are now a possible option.
“Udinese are not the only club after Michele,” representative Vincenzo D’Ippolito told Il Calcio 24 on Monday. “Napoli have emerged as well in the last few hours.
“There could be some important developments very soon.”
The 29-year-old only left Napoli in the summer after his contract came to an end. He has started just one League game for the Old Lady so far.
Juventus will only sell Pazienza if they are able to bring in a new midfielder by tomorrow evening.
