Cengiz Under has reportedly agreed personal terms with Napoli, but Roma want €30m for the winger and are unwilling to receive Kevin Malcuit in return.
Cengiz has emerged as a leading contender to replace Jose Callejon on Napoli’s right flank in recent days.
According to La Repubblica, he has already shaken hands with the Partenopei on a €3m salary.
However, the newspaper warns that whereas the Coppa Italia winners value him at no more than €25m with bonuses, the Giallorossi are playing hardball, demanding no less than €30m.
Corriere della Sera takes a different stance, claiming Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso wants the 22-year-old to replace Hirving Lozano.
They would also be hoping to do a deal similar to when they signed Kostas Manolas last summer, sending Amadou Diawara in part exchange, this time offering Malcuit.

The right-back is third choice for Napoli, behind Giovanni Di Lorenzo and the resurgent Elseid Hysaj.
Despite that, the newspaper claims he is not particularly of interest to the capital club.
