Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis wants youth teams entered into Italy's senior football pyramid.

De Laurentiis would like to see more emphasis on youth development.

"We need to form players for the future because we can't keep buying from outside of Italy," the movie mogul argued.

"All that is needed for that is to then allow our youth teams to take part in the Lega Pro Divisions. That would help our youngsters and their value grow.

"We would therefore already have a reservoir that would guarantee us reinforcements for the future."
