Former Sampdoria boss Walter Mazzarri is tipped to be unveiled as the new coach of Napoli amid the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of Roberto Donadoni.
Donadoni is expected to be axed following criticism from president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
But despite the future of the former Italy coach yet to be confirmed officially by the club, Mazzarri is the frontrunner to take the reins at the Stadio San Paolo.
"The fans can rest easy because I'm working for their future," said De Laurentiis in an update on the club's official website.
"It was a busy day, long, full of events and interviews.
"As soon as I can I'll communicate the decisions for the good of Napoli."
