Napoli medical staff hope to rush Edinson Cavani's recovery so he can feature against Inter on Saturday.
The Uruguayan had been ruled out for a week after spraining his ankle during the Champions League win over Villarreal.
However, two days after that incident his ankle is doing better than expected and he was spotted running in today's training session.
According to reports from Sky Sport Italia there is around a 30 per cent chance that Cavani could make it for the big game at San Siro.
As President Aurelio De Laurentiis made it clear he is giving priority to the Champions League, it remains to be seen whether they'll risk their star striker.
If Cavani doesn't make it, then ex-Inter striker Goran Pandev is expected to start. He is only on loan from the Nerazzurri and returns to face his former teammates.
Salvatore Aronica is also a fitness doubt for the Partenopei, but should recover in time.
