Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis is reportedly planning to buy a Portuguese club with the aid of super-agent Jorge Mendes.
There were reports over the last few days that De Laurentiis was in talks to snap up a Belgian side and use it as a feeder club.
However, now Rai Sport claim that the patron has turned his focus towards Portugal and flew out to Lisbon on Monday for a meeting with Jorge Mendes.
He is said to be evaluating the purchase of a club either in the top flight or second division.
If Mendes is involved, that would be a huge advantage, as it’d give Napoli a way in to his scouting network and vast roster of players.
