Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol is on his way to Serie A side Napoli, suggests the Gazzetta dello Sport.
The international is available for transfer this summer, with clubs such as Valencia and Atletico Madrid keen.
However, Albiol could link up with Spanish tactician Rafael Benitez at the Stadio San Paolo for the 2013-14 campaign.
The 27-year-old could be netted for €12m. A four-year deal has apparently been offered to the stopper.
The Azzurri have already signed Jose Callejon from Madrid and they may also be interested in Gonzalo Higuain.
