Marino confirms Napoli's Baselli interest

Atalanta director Pierpaolo Marino has confirmed that Napoli are interested in signing youngster Daniele Baselli.

The 21-year-old midfielder is being hotly-tipped as one of the most exciting prospects in Italy, and the Dea sporting chief has revealed that Partenopei President Aurelio De Laurentiis has spoken with him about the lad.

“Baselli is the sort of player who likes to build an attack,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“His characteristics remind me of Hamsik. We’re not putting him on the market, but De Laurentiis has asked me about him in a few meetings.

“We haven’t talked about costs, but it’s clear that they’re following him.”
