Napoli and Roma are targeting Brazil Under-20 and Sao Paulo goalkeeper Lucas Perri, the new Alisson Becker.
The 20-year-old shot-stopper is the brightest young talent coming out of his country since Alisson.
According to Mediaset Premium, both Napoli and Roma are interested in a swoop for Perri.
They face competition from Sporting CP and Celta Vigo.
There could be a knock-on effect, as Napoli’s Pepe Reina will not sign a new contract and has reportedly agreed a deal with Milan.
Alisson has become a major transfer target for Europe’s top clubs over the summer, including Real Madrid.
