Napoli is actively pursuing Antonio Conte to take over as their new head coach and have begun preparations to engage in talks with Tottenham regarding Dejan Kulusevski, as per reports.

Aurelio De Laurentiis, the president of Napoli, recognizes the need for a significant response in the summer following a tumultuous season post-Scudetto, which has witnessed three different coaches—Rudi Garcia, Walter Mazzarri, and Francesco Calzona—taking charge.

Conte has been De Laurentiis’ preferred choice for Napoli for quite some time, and efforts to persuade the strategist to join the club have been ongoing since October, fueled by their close relationship.

According to local source Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, De Laurentiis aims to leverage the transfer market to sway Conte towards Napoli and has pinpointed Kulusevski as an attractive option, given the coach’s admiration for the Swede.

Napoli is gearing up to initiate negotiations with Tottenham in the upcoming months, although securing Kulusevski’s services won’t be straightforward, given his contract with Tottenham running until June 2028.
