Multiple sources in Italy claim Fernando Llorente is closer to Napoli than Inter or Manchester United, but it all depends on Mauro Icardi.
The former Tottenham Hotspur striker is a free agent and can therefore sign for a new club even after the September 2 deadline.
Both Sportitalia and Sky Sport Italia are confident Llorente is in direct talks with Napoli Coach Carlo Ancelotti and intrigued by the project at the Stadio San Paolo.
It would be a return to Italy after his time with Napoli’s arch rivals Juventus.
His Coach at Juve, Antonio Conte, would like a reunion at Inter and that too is a possibility, even with the arrival of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
Manchester United are looking a little short on forwards and can only sign free agents, so are certainly keeping a close eye on the Spaniard’s situation.
However, it all comes down to Icardi, because the Argentine is clearly Napoli’s first choice and continues to slam the door on the Partenopei, Monaco and any other options.
Icardi only wants to join Juventus or could stay at Inter, even though he has been very publicly frozen out and told he will not play.
