With at the helm, the port side club have been very active in this summer transfer market, and the Azzurri are still searching for a reliable centre-back and a backup striker for new forward signing .

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Napoli have reached an agreement with the Bianconeri for the 29-year-old hit-man, and the only thing now missing is the ‘yes’ from Matri.

A 5 year contract worth €3 million a season is on the table for the Juve front-man, and this could be enough to convince him, even though as part of the deal he would have to hand over his image rights to the Naples-based side.
