Napoli have reportedly agreed a deal with Hellas Verona for defender Marash Kumbulla, worth €20m plus €4m bonuses for next season.
The centre-back turns 20 next month and is already a senior Albania international, even though he was born and raised in Italy.
This is his debut Serie A season, playing 14 games and scoring one goal.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the two clubs have reached an agreement for the player, but still need to convince him that this is the right transfer.
Many clubs have shown an interest in Kumbulla, above all Inter.
Napoli have already purchased his Verona teammate Amir Rrahmani, who will remain on loan at the Bentegodi for the rest of the season.
