Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says Manchester City target Mauro Icardi is a star in the making - and has hinted at a summer move.

Napoli join Man City in race for Sampdoria star

The Sampdoria starlet has scored nine in 22 league matches so far and City scouts are tracking his progress.

talkSPORT revealed last month that Napoli wanted the 20-year-old but did not want to get into a bidding war with City.

And De Laurentiis says the Serie A side are giving serious thought to going back in for the Argentine when the window opens.

"He's a potential star of the future," he said. "We'll certainly hear more about him.

"Napoli made a move, but we also take into account certain factors which other clubs perhaps do not.

"We are reflecting on our steps because to sign a player and then not give him the chance to play is the worst thing you can do."
