Udinese own Spanish side Granada and Championship side Watford, and their relationship has worked well.
De Laurentiis has now admitted he is ready to do the same and buy an English club and he wants to appoint former Napoli boss Edy Reja as boss.
"I called Reja over the last few days and told him I intend to expand my football empire," De Laurentiis told Radio Marte.
"I want to buy three clubs, including one in England, so I asked Reja if he would be willing to be the coach and he said he's available.
"Obviously, if when something happens he has taken on another commitment, then I'll seek someone else.
"In my life I have always been in love with Naples and its culture. I want to bring this city around the world. Some of my friends say they've never seen the city and I wonder how that is even possible."
