He would need to extend his current contract with Chelsea before making the loan move to Salernitana, but all parties seem eager to make the deal work.
Salernitana’s first choice had been Nwankwo Simy, but Crotone want at least €10m for the Nigeria international, who is also targeted by Torino and Monza.
The Stadio Arechi side was promoted to Serie A by finishing runners-up to Empoli in Serie B last season.
They went up along with Venezia, who won the promotion play-offs.
