Napoli want to take Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma on loan in the January transfer window, says Sport Mediaset.
The France international is currently recovering from a long-term knee injury and the Serie A club hope to offer him valuable game time in the second half of the season as he looks to get back up to speed.
SportMediaset claims Napoli will offer to bring Zouma to Italy for six months as they seek cover for Kalidou Koulibaly.
The centre-back – ironically the subject of a big-money bid from Chelsea last summer – will miss the start of 2017 when he heads to the African Cup of Nations with Senegal.
And Napoli reckon Zouma would be perfect to fill in and potentially partner Koulibaly once he returns to the San Paolo.
