Napoli to swoop for Coentrao?

Napoli could make a move for Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao, according to reports in the Italian Press.

Il Mattino have claimed this afternoon that the Serie A side are tracking the progress of the Portuguese defender as a potential replacement for Juan Zuniga.

The Colombia international has been linked with a move to Juventus this summer, and Rafael Benitez’s men see the 25-year-old as his ready-made successor.

Coentrao has endured an inconsistent career at Santiago Bernabeu since he arrived from Benfica in 2011.

He could be available for a fee of around €18m.

Napoli have already captured Gonzalo Higuain, Raul Albiol and Jose Callejon from Real Madrid this summer.
