Napoli's president admits on Twitter that the club wants to sign Gonzalo Higuain and Leandro Damiao.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has admitted that the Serie A side are in talks for both Gonzalo Higuain of Real Madrid and Internacional's Leandro Damiao.

Both players have been linked with summer moves to the Premier League, but now De Laurentiis is looking to spend some of the £54m the club received for selling Edinson Cavani to Paris Saint-Germain on the two forwards.

"We are negotiating for Leandro Damiao and Higuain," Laurentiis said on Twitter. "Raul Albiol is already having a medical."

Damiao's club Internacional said yesterday that they had yet to receive a bid for the player.
