Napoli scouting Fluminense's winger Wellington Nem
Napoli have been scouting Fluminense's talented winger Wellington Nem, according to reports from Italy.
The 21-year old player has had impressive performances for the Tricolor, and was part of the squad that won the Brazilian national league title in 2012.
Although Wellington Nem is a short player, he is physically strong and has good speed and technique, besides being versatile as he can play as a forward, attacking midfielder and winger.
He has already been called up for Brazil's national team, having won the Superclásico de las Américas tournament against Argentina last year.
Wellington Nem was scouted by Arsenal last year but no offer was ever made. Napoli are now the main European club following his progress.
He has been compared in Italian press to Ezequiel Lavezzi, and Napoli are considering the possibility of making an offer.
The Fluminense winger is not the only player in their shortlist though, as they are also following Udinese'a Luis Muriel and Sampdoria-owned Simone Zaza.
