Serie A hot-shots Napoli have entered negotiations with Real Sociedad over a winter transfer of winger Mikel Oyarzabal.
Sky Sport Italia reports that Partenopei have turned their attention to the versatile Real Sociedad winger after failing to recruit any of their first-choice options.
Simone Verdi rejected a chance to move away from Bologna during the season, whereas Amin Younes also pushed forth his departure date to the end of the season. In addition, Sassuolo are refusing to sell Matteo Politano and Napoli were forced to turn their attention to alternative targets.
The 20-year-old Real Sociedad academy product has emerged as one of the key figures for his team this season, with eight goals and five assists in 24 outings this term.
Maurizio Sarri is said to have been impressed by his versatility and ability to slot into a number of positions behind the front line.
Napoli are currently leading the line in Serie A and are keen to bolster their ranks in order to boost their title charge. Partenopei can be backed at 19/20 to lift the Serie A trophy this season.
