The Serie A side are in the market for a new number one as their current goalie, Morgan de Sanctis, nears the end of his career.
At 35 years old, de Sanctis is set to hang up his gloves within the next couple of seasons and the Italian giants have identified Mannone as the player to replace him.
The Italian impressed the Napoli scouts earlier in the season when Mannone had a string of performances in the Arsenal goal due to injury to usual number one Wojciech Szczesny. It is understood that this was only a temporary solution for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who considers Szczesny to be his outright number one, but the player apparently did enough to catch the attention of the Serie A club.
Mannone is said to be willing to consider a deal as he searches for regular first team action. The goalie is still only 24 years old, relatively young for a goalie, but is said to be seeking to find a club where he will occupy the number one spot. Mannone spent a season at Hull two seasons ago and is said to be ready to consider a return to his homeland.
