Villarreal midfielder Borja Valero has confirmed his agent has been in talks with Italian side Napoli.
The Spanish playmaker has been attracting plaudits following good performances for Villarreal this season, with the 26-year-old recently linked with a return to Real Madrid in the summer.
But his agent Alejandro Camano has already held talks with Napoli and the player himself has expressed his liking for the area.
Valero told Radio Kiss Kiss: “I really like Napoli, it is an exceptional place.
“I was there to play with Villarreal in the Europa League and was amazed by the atmosphere at the San Paolo.
“I do know that my agent Camano has spoken to the Napoli directors, but I can not give any statements on the matter.”
