Napoli are now in pursuit of Liverpool and Arsenal’s long target Jese, according to reports.

Both the Premier League giants  have long been scouting the Spanish forward’s current situation at Real Madrid, where he is right now on the periphery of Benitez’s regular starting eleven.

However, he recently insisted publicly that he is very happy at Real Madrid, despite few regular first-team footballs, though some reports have claimed; Jese may be planning to part away with Madrid in the upcoming winter transfer window.

And now according reports from AS, Italian side Napoli surprisingly emerged as the frontrunners in the fight to sign Jese as they had monitored him once again when he was playing against PSG in the Champions League this week.

The 22-year-old promising Spaniard, who has played just four La Liga matches this season, was substituted after 63 minutes but Napoli scouts present in that match were still said to be impressed about Jese’s performance. Reports claim that now signing Jese is Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri’s top transfer window priority, despite Arsenal and Liverpool’s long term interest.

Not only Napoli, but another Serie A giants Inter also showing their interest in Jese. They have made quite an impressive start to their Serie A campaign till now and manager Roberto Mancini looks to bolster his team’s title chances by strengthening his attacking line with the inclusion of Jese.

Jese’s agent Gines Carvajal earlier told Marca: “he needs to play more, that’s the best way to keep his spirits up. The club will have to make a decision. He’s training well; he’s strong and has to seize the opportunity when it comes.”

The Spaniard announced himself in the 2013/14 season with five goals in 18 matches before a cruciate ligament consigned him to a nine-month spell on the sidelines.

As a result, what had been suggested to become a successful career for Jese at Real Madrid is now possibly set to end in much disappointment and the forward is now rumoured to leave Bernabeu in search for regular first team football.
