Napoli are in desperate need of defensive reinforcements following the sale of Kostas Manolas plus the extended absence of Kalidou Koulibaly due to the Africa Cup of Nations.
According to SportItalia’s Alfredo Pedulla, one of the players that the Partenopei are eyeing is out-of-favor Roma defender Federico Fazio.
The Argentine has been frozen out of the club’s senior squad and hasn’t made a single appearance all season after he rejected multiple transfer offers this past summer.
Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti was at the helm in the Italian capital when the Giallorossi originally acquired Fazio on loan in the summer of 2016 from Tottenham.
The Italian tactician has always been a huge admirer of the veteran and is pushing to reunite with him at Napoli.
