Villarreal midfielder Borja Valero has confirmed his agent has spoken to Italian side Napoli.
The Spanish playmaker has been attracting attention following good performances for Villarreal this term, with the 26-year-old recently linked with a return to Real Madrid in the summer.
But his agent Alejandro Camano has been speaking to Napoli and the player himself has expressed his liking for the area.
Valero told Radio Kiss Kiss: "I really like Napoli, it is an exceptional place.
"I was there to play with Villarreal in the Europa League and was amazed by the atmosphere at the San Paolo.
"I do know that my agent Camano has spoken to the Napoli directors, but I can not give any statements on the matter."
After a difficult spell in the Premier League with West Brom two years ago, Valero moved back to Mallorca last season and became a key figure in their qualification for the Europa League, before signing for Villarreal last summer on a five-year contract.
