Napoli chief Cristiano Giuntoli has asked Llorente to give them until Monday night to make him an offer.

Giuntoli is also interested in Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, says Gazzetta dello Sport, though negotiations are proving difficult.

The danger for Napoli is that Llorente isn't short of offers should they continue to dither.

Inter Milan, Fiorentina and Lazio are also in contact with the 34 year-old striker.

Celtic have been keen on a loan deal for Bournemouth midfielder Ibe.

However, they face competition from Italy, where Fiorentina are also keen, reports The Scotsman.

Indeed, Espanyol, Napoli and Fiorentina are all monitoring a constantly evolving situation.

Any potential deal is understood to hinge on the fitness of summer signing Arnaut Danjuma, who is believed to have aggravated a foot injury that kept him sidelined for four months last season before his 13,7 million move from Belgian giants Club Brugge.

Corriere dello Sport says United made an 82m bid for Koulibaly before the transfer window shut last week.

However, Napoli rejected the bid straight away.

It is not clear whether this reported bid was before or after United's 80m signing of Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

Koulibaly has also been linked with Inter Milan this summer.

The Mirror says he would like to return to Serie A and enjoyed five successful years with Udinese before joining Barcelona for 30million in 2011.

Sanchez scored 12 Serie A goals in his final campaign with Udinese and is still respected in Italy, where the transfer window remains open until September 2.

Roma have cooled their interest after being keen on the South American and it is understood he was not happy with their offer.

Sanchez's agent Fernando Felicevich met Juventus officials in May and the Italian champions, together with Napoli, AC Milan and Inter Milan, would consider signing him on loan.

The former Torino defender has been made available by Chelsea this month, with manager Frank Lampard keen to make room to bring through Reece James.

Roma are in the market for fullback signing, says Il Messaggero, and also have Napoli's Elseid Hysaj on their shortlist.

However, Roma management see Zappacosta as the better option.

And Chelsea are eager to do business, with a priority on a straight cash sale.

<![CDATA[Napoli in talks with Barcelona SC for Leonardo Campana]]> <p>Napoli are in talks with Barcelona SC for starlet Leonardo Campana.</p><p>However, his agent Federico Pena says the Azzurri face competition.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/napoli-in-talks-with-barcelona-sc-for-leonardo-campana-4292927?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BNapoli'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Napoli are in talks with Barcelona SC for starlet Leonardo Campana.

However, his agent Federico Pena says the Azzurri face competition.

He told CalcioNapoli24.it: He speaks English fluently, frequented an international school and had opportunities that are almost unthinkable in Ecuador.

There are other clubs interested, many of them, but I don't want to name names. His club, Barcelona SC, lowered their asking price to 5m, whereas before the Under-20 World Cup, they had been hoping for 15m.

That evaluation made quite a few clubs run away, but now they are coming back to the table. Campana is an important player with incredible prospects. Don't forget, he made his senior debut for Ecuador before playing for Barcelona SC.

The choice of his next step isn't just down to the player, so whoever pays up first, will presumably get to take him home. Some had tried to take him on loan, but his current club doesn't like that option.

This is not a South American teenager distracted by parties or nightlife, but a highly-disciplined athlete who had a top level education. His father is a former tennis pro who participated in the Olympics, so he comes from good stock.

He is a centre-forward, very tally and two-footed, there really is no difference between when he kicks with his left or his right. Despite being tall, he is not a static striker, but someone I'd compare with all due respect and proportion to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

I mean to describe that he's big, but not clumsy or static. He is ready for Europe and would have a preference for Italy, but we'll see"

Sky Sports says Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has set his sights on securing Real Madrid's James Rodriguez or Inter's Mauro Icardi.

However, neither deal is close and both have significant hurdles to overcome before any agreement is reached.

If neither arrive in Naples, De Laurentiis is expected to turn to the Spanish striker who was released by Tottenham at the end of last season and is available on a free transfer, even after September 2nd, when the Italian window closes.

The striker left LOSC earlier this month for a club record 80m.

Lopez stated, "He was looking for two things for his future: playing the Champions League or being part of a group that could play in it. Then he wanted to be able to have a great impact, not only in terms of goals, but inside the club.

"Napoli and Arsenal had these characteristics, Napoli is in the Champions League and Arsenal is one of the greats of the Premier League.

"He chose England because it is there where he wants to leave a mark.

RAI Sport says Alexis was offered to Napoli over the weekend.

However, while seeking a new striker signing this month, Napoli turned down the prospect of taking Alexis off United's hands.

Demands that Napoli cover Alexis' wages put a quick end to negotiations.

The striker earns over 500,000-a-week at United.
