Napoli are moving into pole position for free agent Fernando Llorente, ahead of Fiorentina, Lazio and Manchester United.
According to La Repubblica newspaper, the Partenopei are in advanced talks with the 34-year-old Spaniard.
He is available after his Tottenham Hotspur contract was allowed to expire and he participated in the Champions League Final.
Manchester United could still sign him after the Premier League transfer deadline, because he is a free agent.
Fiorentina and Lazio have been mentioned as possible destinations, but it’s reported Napoli have pushed their way to the front of the queue.
Llorente would be seen as a super-sub to be brought on against teams who are difficult to break down.
