​Napoli have agreed a €30m (£26m) fee with Sampdoria for Inter Milan transfer target Lucas Torreira, according to reports in Italy. 

The 22-year-old - who has been called up to the Uruguay national squad for the first time recently - has been linked with a number of ​Serie A sides alongside Nerazzurri, including ​AC Milan, Juventus and Roma, as well as Primera Division outfit ​Atletico Madrid.

However, according to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, as quoted by ​CalciomercatoPartenopei currently lead the race, with the report claiming a €30m fee has already been agreed with Blucerchiati president Massimo Ferrero. 

Previous reports have claimed that ​Napoli intend to finance the deal by offloading Amadou Diawara to a ​Premier League suitor, with ​Tottenham Hotspur said to be interested. 

Despite the summer still many months away, Napoli are keen to take advantage of Inter Milan's monetary uncertainties, with a combination of the Financial Fair Play regulations as well as the lack of confirmation surrounding a Champions League spot for next season delaying their bid. 

It now seems, however, that Nerazzurri's slow pace has cost them a central midfielder who has been a stand out performer for Sampdoria on many occasions during his 28 showings across all competitions so far this season.

But despite the disappointment in missing out on Torreira, ​Inter boss Luciano Spalletti is reportedly lining up an alternative target in Cagliari ace Nicolo Barella.

Although, both ​Juventus and Roma will attempt to make their swoop as difficult as possible, with the pairing also showing interest in the 21-year-old.
