Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has confirmed interest in Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko. De Laurentiis, a film producer, flew into England on Monday with the club's sporting director Riccardo Bigon and administrator Andrea Chiavelli.
He did admit that he instructed Bigon to talk with City about Dzeko and whether they wanted to do a deal for Edinson Cavani.
"Yesterday [Monday] I was in London with Chiavelli and Bigon and for a simple reason: I have to prepare for the release of the film on Steve Jobs.
"Though, I told Bigon: 'Go to City and have a moment to negotiate Dzeko and what they are willing to do for Cavani'."
