Napoli are interested in Villarreal striker Luciano Vietto as they consider replacements should Gonzalo Higuain leave the club at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old Argentinian youth international has impressed European clubs, showing consistency and quality throughout the season, managing to score 20 goals and assisting another eight for The Yellow Submarine across all competitions.

According to, Napoli are extremely keen on Vietto and he is their first choice replacement should his fellow countryman ‘El Pipita’ leave the club in the summer transfer window.

The Partenopei are ready to submit an offer, despite strong interest from European giants, such as Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool.

Napoli currently sit in fifth place of the Serie A table and are struggling against Sampdoria, Fiorentina and Lazio in the battle for third, which secures a playoff spot for the next Champions League campaign.
