Napoli have made an offer to sign Torino centre-back Angelo Ogbonna, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
The 21-year-old has become Napoli's No 1 transfer target in January following Gianluca Grava's serious injury.
Napoli had been linked with Miguel Britos but Bologna have let it be known that he is unavailable at least until the summer.
Il Corriere understands that this has prompted Napoli to accelerate their efforts to bring in Ogbonna.
A bid worth €7m has apparently been made and it's now up to Torino to respond.
