Napoli have entered talks to sign Mainz striker Jean-Philippe Mateta, according to French outlet L’equipe.
The French newspaper states that the Partenopei have been in talks with the German outfit regarding a potential deal since last week.
According to the report, Napoli have stepped up their efforts to sign the player in recent hours by offering €20m plus winger Amin Younes in exchange for Mateta.
Napoli are on the lookout for a new striker as Rino Gattuso remains unconvinced by Fernando Llorente.
It’s believed that a move for SPAL’s Andrea Petagna has been rejected by the club.
Mateta has scored twice in five Bundesliga games for Mainz this season.
