Gennaro Gattuso is a top candidate in line to become Napoli manager if Carlo Ancelotti leaves the club.
A poor run of form and disputes between the players and club president Aurelio De Laurentiis off the pitch have seen Napoli suffer a dismal season.
Gattuso, a former AC Milan manager, may become the next manager as the Serie A side is considering their options, SkySports report.
Napoli face Genk on Tuesday in the Champions League and a defeat could spell the end of Ancelotti's time in charge.
SkySports further understands that Everton is a possible destination for the former Chelsea manager if he is sacked.
Gattuso in his playing days won two Serie A and two Champions League titles in 13 years at AC Milan where he played under Ancelotti.
