Napoli are reportedly interested in Marseille winger Florian Thauvin, but any deal would be for the summer.
The Partenopei are looking to strengthen in wide areas, but were rejected by Bologna’s Simone Verdi and Sassuolo won’t sell Matteo Politano.
Gerard Deulofeu of Barcelona is a possible option for this month, but Corriere dello Sport believes sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli is also looking ahead to the summer.
