Napoli are interested in Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva.

The Italy international is in co-ownership with Udinese.

"There was an initial approach when Napoli asked us about Candreva, it's true," Udinese director of sport Cristiano Giaretta told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"However, it's also true to say there are no concrete negotiations. Antonio is an important player, but we have to evaluate the situation."
