The same source has suggested that sporting director Riccardo Bigon has travelled to Milan, where he has met several football agents.
It is believed the Napoli official is trying to conclude deals for Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons and Paris Saint-Germain defender Mamadou Sakho.
The Lyon captain appears to be looking for a new challenge, especially as les Gones look set for an early exit from the Champions League, but persuading his current employers to sell will be no easy task.
Meanwhile, PSG wantaway defender Mamadou Sakho appears to be a more realistic target, but the problem is he is also wanted by AC Milan.
Whatever happens, these latest moves are enough to suggest Napoli are keen on further closing the gap behind title rivals Juventus and possibly ready to mount a serious title challenge.
