Napoli set to bid for Mascara

Reports suggest Napoli are giving serious thought to signing Giuseppe Mascara from Catania.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims the 31-year-old striker would be brought in as cover for Edinson Cavani.

Mascara's contract is due to expire in the summer and he has apparently received a contract offer from Napoli.

Aurelio De Laurentiis is prepared to wait for the player until June when he would sign a three-year deal at the San Paolo.

If an agreement were reached, Mascara would become Napoli's 'second signing of the summer' after Estudiantes defender Federico Fernandez.
