thumbnail Hello,

Juventus could take full advantage of a reported clause in the player's terms with Napoli...

Juventus are planning to try their hand at luring Napoli ace Marek Hamsik this summer as a clause between the midfielder and his current club will allow him to leave, according to reports in Italy.

Tuttosport claims the Slovakian international may use a clause in his deal to ask the Partenopei to place him on the transfer market. The clause relates to European qualification. Voices suggest Hamsik can leave if the club fail to qualify for continental football, which is what will inevitably happen this season. The player's current deal expires in 2013, however, that could change and Juve are ready to pounce.

It is suggested Hamsik is keen on playing Champions League football and Juve would be able to guarantee that as they are set to qualify for the competition. Negotiations are likely to follow next week once the championship ends. The player's agent is expected in the port city to discuss his client’s future.

Although Napoli's president has promised fans that his best players will stay, he may be helpless if the clause claims are accurate. Juve could be in line to make their move with a €20 million bid.
