Jonathan interests Napoli

Napoli could negotiate a loan deal for Inter fullback Jonathan while they're in Milan, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Partenopei President Aurelio De Laurentiis is in the northern city finalising the transfer of Walter Gargano to the Nerazzurri, but is also said to be considering a move for the Brazilian defender.

The 26-year-old struggled to settle when he arrived at Inter this time last year, but later performed well during a loan spell with Parma.

Jonathan faces competition for the right back slot from Javier Zanetti and Maicon - who may not be leaving after all - so boss Andrea Stramaccioni might consider loaning him out once again.
