The agent of AZ Alkmaar and Iran winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh confirmed “Napoli have been tracking him for some time.”
The 24-year-old has been in Holland since 2013, first for NEC Nijmegen and then AZ Alkmaar.
This season he has scored an impressive 21 goals with 12 assists in 33 Eredivisie matches.
“Jahanbakhsh is a right-sided winger, but can play on both flanks and is very good both when attacking and defending,” agent Amir Hashemi told Radio CRC.
“He is extraordinary when taking men on, in dribbling and providing assists, but despite all these characteristics as a winger, he is also a great goal-scorer too.
“I can’t say anything officially, but I know that Napoli are interested and have been tracking him for some time. I heard that two or three Napoli scouts have come to view him play for AZ Alkmaar, but I cannot say more than that right now.
“Jahanbakhsh is very ambitions and it’ll be important for him to know he’s important for his new team. Napoli are a great club and many players would be honoured to wear their jersey.”
