Federico Chiesa of Fiorentina remains Napoli’s number one target, according to reports, but negotiations will be difficult.
The Partenopei had a bid for the Italian international rejected in the summer, believed to be worth €60m, as the Viola refused to sell.
According to today’s Corriere dello Sport though, President Aurelio De Laurentiis is determined to have Chiesa at the San Paolo and is ready to make another move.
The Napoli owner has a good relationship with the Della Valle family, but any negotiation is still expected to prove difficult.
Contacts continue though, and if there is any opening the Partenopei are ready to exploit it.
