Serie A sides eye Mannone

Inter, Milan and Napoli are thought to be eyeing Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone for a return to Italy.

The former Under-21 international shot-stopper has impressed this season in place of injured Wojchiech Szczesny.

However, his contract is due to expire at the end of the season, arousing interest from several Serie A sides.

According to the Daily Mail, Mannone is a target for Inter and Napoli, although the Italian media also include Milan in the running.

The 24-year-old could move in the January transfer window to avoid Arsenal losing him on a free transfer next summer.

Inter would be an unlikely buyer, as they only signed Samir Handanovic from Udinese in June.

Milan and Napoli are on the look-out for younger figures, as Christian Abbiati and Morgan De Sanctis are nearing the end of their careers.
