The midfielder could follow Marcello Trotta to England after his former team-mate joined Manchester City this summer.

However, despite reports of a lucrative three-year contract on offer at St James' Park, the 17-year-old's father, Nicola, claims Liccardo's first choice is to remain with Napoli.

"Napoli are his dream," he told Il Mattino. "He was born Azzurrino and wants to stay there."
Ahh well ... at least we tried.
