Napoli are eyeing Barcelona defender Gabi Milito.

Milito, the younger brother of Inter Milan star Diego Milito, has made a transfer request at Barca for this month.

The former Real Zaragoza stopper is anxious about making Argentina's Copa America squad and knows he needs regular first team action to put his name in front of selectors.

Napoli sports director Riccardo Bigon has opened talks with Barca about a loan agreement to the end of the season.
