Pereira keen on Italian move
Porto full-back Alvaro Pereira has confirmed he would welcome a move to Serie A amid reports Napoli are closing in on a deal.
Uruguay international Pereira, 26, had been targeted by Chelsea last summer and there are rumours that the Blues, along with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, maintain an interest in the player.
Napoli, though, are believed to be closest to a deal and Pereira has suggested he would be open to the move.
"The Italian league attracts me, but I don't know what's going to happen," he told Sky Sport24. "I'm in South America at the moment but I will return to Portugal to talk with FC Porto to decide my future.
"For now, I'm an FC Porto player."
Pereira, a left-sided player capable of operating in midfield or defence, is said to have a €30 million release clause.
