Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis will reportedly meet Gennaro Gattuso later, as Carlo Ancelotti struggles to turn things around at San Paolo.
Tuttosport claims Gattuso is scheduled to hold face-to-face talks with Partenopei President in Rome today.
Napoli are seventh in Serie A after 15 games and just 21 points and have gone nine games without a win.
This has sparked rumours about the former Milan boss possibly replacing Ancelotti, his mentor at San Siro.
The 41-year-old lost his job after steering the Rossoneri to fifth last season, just outside the Champions League places.
However, Napoli may need to hurry as Tuttosport notes Fiorentina and Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande could both step in.
