Napoli have agreed an alliance deal with Flamengo.

Corriere dello Sport says Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis travelled to Brazil over the Christmas period and held talks with his opposite number at Flamengo, Patricia Amorim.

The agreement will see Napoli gain first refusal on Flamengo's players and also see the Brazilian club play a friendly in Italy later this year.

For the moment, De Laurentiis has his eyes on Welinton Souza Silva, a 21-year-old centre-back, and Lenon Fernandes Ribeiro, a 20-year-old holding midfielder.
