Sky Sport Italia reports that AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli is the leading candidate to take over at Napoli next season, as Aurelio De Laurentiis believes he can begin a new long-term project with the 58-year-old.

AC Milan coach Pioli is the favorite to replace Francesco Calzona at Napoli next season, reports Sky Sport Italia. Pioli’s contract with AC Milan expires in 2025, but the Rossoneri are expected to part company with the Parma-born tactician at the end of the season. According to the report, Napoli president De Laurentiis considers Pioli the most suitable choice for the job in 2024-25 and believes he can begin a long-term project with Pioli. Sky claims that Vincenzo Italiano is also being considered by Napoli, but the Fiorentina boss is currently fully focused on the latter part of the season with the Tuscans, in particular their Conference League campaign, so we don’t expect him to be in talks with the Partenopei any time soon. The other two candidates linked with the job are Gian Piero Gasperini, who seems keen to stay at Bergamo, and Antonio Conte. Sky confirms that negotiations between Napoli and Conte are not at an advanced stage, given that hiring the Italian tactician won&#8217t be cheap and Napoli believe that the former Juventus and Inter coach wouldn&#8217t be suitable for a long-term project.
