Napoli president and owner Aurelio De Laurentiis is in constant contact with Massimo Cellino, who is his opposite number at Brescia, over a move for midfielder Sandro Tonali according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere del Mezzogiorno.

Inter and Juventus have both been heavily linked with making a move for the highly rated midfielder who is celebrating his 20th birthday today and many reports have stated they are leading the race to sign him.

De Laurentiis however has other ideas and would like to beat both the Nerazzurri and Bianconeri clubs to the signature of the youngster who has been likened to the legendary Andrea Pirlo many a time.

Tonali also has interest in his services from abroad with the report going on to state that Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona are both also keen on him with the latter seemingly ready to make an offer totalling €60 million for him.

This season Tonali, who has a contract with La Rondinelle until the end of next season, has made 24 appearances in which he has scored one goal and provided five assists.
