Napoli currently have Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina on loan for the season but the Azzurri are reportedly hoping to keep him on a permanent basis.
Barcelona are widely believed to be aiming to pounce for Reina once his period at the Stadio San Paolo expires in June and have a good chance of convincing the Spaniard to sign.
The 'keeper has publicly stated his desire to play for Barcelona and it looks likely that a fee could be agreed with Liverpool.
However, Reina has settled well at Napoli and has become a central figure in Rafa Benitez's squad.
The Italian website cites their Spanish counterparts Il Mundo Deportivo in claiming that Napoli are readying a bid of just under £5m to convince Liverpool to sell Reina permanently to them.
Manuel Garcia Quillon is Reina's agent and also represents Benitez, which may give Napoli a headstart in negotiations.
