With Milan sending Ricardo Rodriguez to PSV Eindhoven, Napoli have turned to Olympiacos left-back Kostas Tsimikas.
Rodriguez had wanted to reunite with former Rossoneri coach Gennaro Gattuso at Napoli, but Milan were only prepared to accept a permanent transfer.
This means the Partenopei have to look elsewhere, so they are reportedly turning their attention back to their previous target Tsimikas.
The asking price is €12-13m, while the most recent offer from Napoli was €8m plus €2m in performance-related bonuses.
As for personal terms, the 23-year-old is believed to have already given the all-clear to this transfer.
The Greek international would reunite with Kostas Manolas at the Stadio San Paolo.
