Napoli ponder Palacio option

Napoli will look to sign Rodrigo Palacio from Genoa this summer should they sell Ezequiel Lavezzi.

The latter is being linked with an exit as clubs such as Inter and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in his signature.

The Azzurri are ready to sell the forward if he asks for a move and they are already working on finding a replacement.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, contact has been made between Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis and Genoa counterpart Enrico Preziosi.

Talks will continue next week, but the report adds that Genoa’s elevated asking price for the 30-year-old may be a problem.

Palacio scored 19 goals in 32 League games this term as the Rossoblu ensured safety on the last day of the campaign.
