Darmian has declared he wishes to return to Italy this summer - and De Laurentiis admits an attempt has already been made.
He declared: "It's true! I told you that we are on six profiles, there could also be (Benjamin) Henrichs of Bayer (Leverkusen)."
He said earlier this month: "My agent knows what I want. Juve, Inter or Napoli?
“It's not my role to answer that question, I'll move for the best solution and I'd consider all possibilities.
“One year ago, I was close to return to Italy but Mourinho and the club didn't want to sell me so nothing happened. An important proof of esteem, but I'm now looking for continuity."
