Champions League qualifiers Napoli have expressed an interest in Sampdoria captain Angelo Palombo.
The midfielder is wanted by a variety of Serie A sides who are hoping to benefit from Doria's shock relegation into Serie B.
Palombo had seemingly expressed a willingness to remain at Marassi, but Napoli will tempt him with European Cup football.
The player's agent Tulio Tinti met with Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon in Milan on Wednesday.
Palombo, an Italian international, has also been linked with former club Fiorentina and Italian giants Inter.
