River Plate midfielder Erik Lamela is wanted by Serie A clubs.

Napoli and Inter Milan emissaries are flying to Argentina for talks with River over Lamela's situation.

Corriere dello Sport says Napoli are stepping up their efforts to sign Lamela by sending scout Maurizio Micheli to the Copa America game between Argentina and Bolivia.

River Plate find themselves in dire financial straits and need to sell their top stars after a shock relegation, the first in their 110-year history.
