Three clubs are expressing an interest in Angelo Palombo following the relegation of his Sampdoria side.
The Doria captain is the club's most wanted player after the port based outfit were surprise Serie A casualties this term.
Reports yesterday suggested that Napoli were very keen after the player's agent met with Azzurri sporting director Riccardo Bigon.
The Champions League qualifiers are not alone though and will face competition from Inter and Fiorentina.
The Nerazzurri want some fresh blood in central midfield, while the Viola are set to reconstruct after a mediocre campaign.
The Tuscan giants are expected to sell club captain Riccardo Montolivo after he refused to sign a new contract.
Although Montolivo and Palombo are different types of midfielder, Montolivo's exit would create space for the Italian international.
Palombo is actually a former Fiorentina player.
