Earlier, it was perceived that the race for the Italian would be a Milan derby. But now, potential options are also appearing in England and Newcastle are also interested in the ex-Roma youngster.

In the enquiries that Napoli have conducted, Aurelio de Laurentiis ascertained that a fee of around €45 million would be enough to sign the Italian.
