Alvaro Pereira appears to be on his way out of Porto as Napoli are eager to add the wingback to their squad, according to reports.
The Serie A outfit were previously linked with Federico Balzaretti, but they have now turned their attention to the Uruguay international after missing out on the former Palermo man.
Pereira joined Porto from Cluj in 2009 and has since developed into one of the most sought after full-backs around in Europe.
The 26-year-old saw a move to Chelsea fall through last year as the Premier League giants refused to meet Porto’s demands.
However, his agent Flavio Perchmen intimated earlier this month that Pereira could be on the move this summer.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Napoli are supposedly willing to pay a transfer fee in the region of 15 million euros to lure the Uruguay international away from his current club.
Pereira’s contract with Porto runs until 2016.
