Napoli have reportedly turned to Rubin Kazan's Yann M'Vila in their search for midfield reinforcements.
With Radja Nainggolan having completed a move to Roma earlier in the week, and a transfer for Lyon captain Maxime Gonalons looking increasingly unlikely, Partenopei coach Rafa Benitez is looking further afield to strengthen his squad.
According to the French Press, 23-year-old M'Vila is the alternative, but with his contract due to run out in June 2017, negotiations could be less than simple.
Napoli would also have to fend off interest from Premier League side Liverpool, and the Frenchman would command a fee in the region of €15m.
