Italian international expected to seal switch to Naples this summer.
Napoli are understood to be closing in on the signing of Juventus striker Alessandro Matri according to reports in the Italian media.
AC Milan have also been credited with an interest, with the Rossoneri believed to have proposed an initial loan offer before an option to buy at the end of the season.
However, Serie A rivals Napoli appear to be in pole position to sign the 28-year-old after making a bid of around €12m to sign the striker outright.
While Juve are reportedly requesting €15m for the former Cagliari marksman, it is reported that an agreement will likely be reached in the coming days, while the player himself is expected to give the green light to the move after considering his future over the weekend.
It will come as a further blow to Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani who is still searching for reinforcements ahead of the new season.
While Keisuke Honda is likely to join in January, their pursuit of Fiorentina starlet Adem Ljajic has seen them rejected thus far after making an initial bid of €8m.
However, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport coach Massimiliano Allegri has told Galliani that he has faith in youngster Andrea Petagna, and it is therefore unnecessary to sign a back-up option for Mario Balotelli.
The Rossoneri will likely switch their attention back to Ljajic, despite speculation linking them with a move for former striker Marco Borriello and Bayern Munich ace Claudio Pizzaro.
Meanwhile, Napoli are set to continue their spending by bringing in Matri as another option up front for coach Rafa Benitez, who secured the signing of Argentinian international Gonzalo Higuain earlier this summer.
