Although Sissoko made a bright start to last season, being a fixture in the starting eleven for the first few months, the midfielder found himself struggling for minutes towards the end of the campaign.
Di Marzio has now backed up claims of Napoli’s interest in Sissoko, revealing that the Serie A club have identified the 31-year-old as one of the options to bolster their midfield.
Club president Aurelio De Laurentiis is said to have enquired about the midfielder’s price to Spurs over the last few days.
The report alleges that the Napoli supremo has even spoken to Sissoko about a move to Naples.
