Cameroon superstar Samuel Eto’o could sign for Napoli after they expressed an interest in the former Barcelona striker, reports the Daily Star.
The Serie A club are aiming to bring the striker back to Italy, after he spent two years at Inter Milan from 2009/11.
The 32-year -old striker is one of the highest paid players in the world right now, but current club Anzhi Makhachkala are looking to sell after their super-rich owners said they want to cut funds.
The Russian club's owner Suleyman Kerimov announced his intentions to dramatically reduce the wage bill at the club after admitting he no longer wants to fund the excessive spending.
Napoli are joining the aforementioned Inter and Chelsea in the race to sign Eto’o.
Eto’o though is unwilling to receive a wage lower than £300,000-a-week at any club, which, extraordinarily, represents a pay cut form his current £320,000-a-week wage.
The former African Player of the Year has expressed his desire to reunite with Jose Mourinho as Chelsea after the pair shared time together at Inter.
However, Rafa Benitez is ready to steal a march on the west London club and has contacted Eto'o's agent with regards to a move.
