Napoli know they will have to fight off interest from AC Milan in their young defender Fabiano Santacroce.

The Brazilian-born stopper can count on Barcelona and Everton among his suitors, which include Milan president Silvio Berlusconi and coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Berlusconi has also confessed his admiration for Ezequiel Lavezzi to Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis, who is adamant they will not sell their best young players, no matter the price.
