Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis has sent Gokhan Inler a clear message: "How interested are you in joining us?"
The San Paolo outfit have sealed a deal with Udinese for the midfielder, but agreeing personal terms has been difficult.
To complicate matters further, Juventus have spoken to his agent about a possible move to Turin.
"Inler is a player who we are flirting with, but I want to ask him how interested he is in joining us," stated De Laurentiis.
"I wonder if he is trying to take advantage of the Champions League window that we are offering him.
"Napoli are Napoli. If he understands that this club is a religion then there could be space for him with us next season."
