Alberto Aquilani's agent insists his client wants to remain in Italy.
The Italian midfielder spent this season on loan at Juventus from Liverpool. but the Turin giants have yet to confirm if they will sign the 26-year-old on a permanent basis.
Aquilani, who has been linked with a move to AC Milan this summer, is also a reported target of Napoli.
"Aquilani to Napoli? I don4t think it would be an easy negotiation but if the will is there why not?" said Aquilani4s agent Franco Zavaglia to Italian Radio Crr.
"I have not spoken to (Napoli sporting director Riccardo) Bigon but the player wants to remain in Italy.
"If something was to come up he would be happy.
"I have not spoken to Alberto but Napoli is an important club.
"If Napoli considered Aquilani to be an important player, he would be open to negotiations."
Liverpool signed Aquilani for a reported fee of £20million from Roma in 2009 and he is under contract with the Reds outfit until June 2014.
Aquilani scored twice in 33 league appearances for Juventus last season.
