Napoli have shown their interest in Inzaghi and have already opened talks, but the 44-year-old Italian coach is taking his time regarding a decision.

A contract renewal with Lazio is still on the table, but Inzaghi does not want to make any hasty decisions. Joining Napoli allows him to remain close to his family, where as a foreign option would complicate things.
