Napoli are ready to battle it out with Inter and Basel for the loan signing of Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah.

The Egypt international is seen as the ideal replacement for forward Lorenzo Insigne, who has been ruled out until April with a cruciate ligament injury.

Napoli’s Serie A rival Inter are also keen on the player, whose name has also been linked with former club Basel, according to The Daily Star.

The player will initially only be available to interested clubs on loan, but there is the possibility that a move could become permanent before the start of next season.

The 22-year-old has made just 16 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea, after making the €13.8 million switch to London at the start of 2014.
