According to Alfredo Pedulla, Napoli have already entered negotiations with Shakhtar for 24-year-old Matviyenko.
The Ukraine international is a product of Shakhtar’s youth system and has made 79 appearances for their first team.
Napoli like Matviyenko particularly as he can also play as a left-back, giving them more tactical options.
Rino Gattuso has a budget for two new defenders this summer, with Arsenal’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos also on their list.
Should Gabriel join Arsenal as is now expected, 32-year-old Sokratis will be made available for transfer.
