The 28-year-old has reportedly been a long-term target for Napoli boss Rafael Benitez.

Following an impressive debut season at the Liberty Stadium, Michu endured a frustrating second campaign with the Swans last term as he struggled with injury.

Napoli are understood to be keen on a year-long loan with the option of a permanent £8million transfer to follow.

Michu's fitness issues last season mean the structuring of that deal could be a sticking point with Swansea, and De Laurentiis admits nothing concrete has been decided.

"Some situations will begin to unlock in the first days of August. We are not only looking for the name, but a profile that is useful to the team and the coach," he told Calcionews24.

"Michu? Negotiations are well under way for months but there is still no agreement reached."

Another member of Swansea's Spanish contingent, Pablo Hernandez, is the subject of interest from Qatari club Al Alarabi.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
