Napoli have Arsenal alternative if Astori offer fails
They have already recruited Raul Albiol for this position but they are very eager to add further depth to this position.
Tuttosport report that the move for the Arsenal man could soon become a real possibility as Cagliari president Massimo Cellino will settle for absolutely no less than €7.5 million on a co-ownership deal.
The Partenopei will face a race against time though to do a deal but the Belgian is not the only man they are looking at as Mamadou Sakho is also an option for the Vesuviani.
Both those players remain far easier options that Martin Skrtel and Javier Mascherano, both of whom Napoli have all but given hope of signing.
