West Ham left-back Arthur Masuaku could be on the move in January with four Serie A clubs interested in snapping him up.
Napoli are believed to have serious interest in the 24-year-old, while Juventus, AC Milan and Genoa are also keeping tabs on the wing-back.
The player's agent, Francesco Lingenti, has targeted a move to Italy for the defender after previous attempts of a switch to Serie A three years ago fell through.
With Masuaku in such high demand, Lingenti believes West Ham could fetch around £6m once the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year.
Lingenti, speaking to CalcioNapoli24.it, said: "I offered Arthur to (Napoli director of sport Cristiano) Giuntoli three years ago, then two years ago and now he has probably got the idea… along with Juventus, Genoa and Milan.
"Of course there have been talks. The player is being watched very carefully by a few clubs, including Napoli.
"We almost signed for Genoa three years ago, then Olympiakos created problems and the deal fell through. Juventus were the first side to send scouts for him four years ago, when he was at Valenciennes in Ligue 1.
"Serie A is our objective and hopefully he'll be there in January. For now, Juventus, Napoli and Genoa are in the lead. However, he'd only go to Juventus if the Bianconeri sold Alex Sandro."
