Marek Hamsik will reportedly hold talks with new Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti before possibly leaving for China.
Shandong Luneng had emerged as the likeliest destination for Hamsik, who admitted on Tuesday that he was considering his future at Napoli.
However, Tuttosport claims Graziano Pelle’s employers ‘haven’t come forward in a concrete manner’, prompting the Slovak to wait for the Coach’s arrival down south.
The newspaper notes contact between the pair will take place ‘in the next few days’, during which the 30-year-old could have a change of heart.
