Napoli have entered talks for Tottenham midfielder Etienne Capoue according to reports.

The 25-year-old who only joined Spurs in the summer from Toulouse, has been limited to just six league starts with his season blighted by injury.Rafa Benitez is thought to be a fan of Capoue and is thought the Serie A outfit made a bid of £7.5 million for his services.

But according to reports in Italy, negotiations seemed to have moved forward somewhat.

Sky Italia believes a fee of just under the £9 million Spurs forked out for Capoue has been agreed.

It has also been suggested that the Napoli’s Sporting Director Riccardo Bigon arrived in London to explore the possibility of a move.Napoli are thought to be flexible, and would consider trying to secure a loan for Capoue if they couldn’t thrash out a permanent deal.

Meanwhile, Daniel Levy has threatened to scupper Arsenal’s plans to land Julian Draxler by trying to block a loan move for Lewis Holtby.
