Beric has impressed in the UEFA Europa League this season, netting in a continental contest with Tottenham.
He is said to have caught the eye of Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas during that fixture, with the Premier League outfit mulling over an approach.
Napoli are now believed to have joined the hunt for the Slovenian frontman.
Beric's agent says the speculation comes as no surprise, but claims no contact has been made by any interested party.
"Beric is a player who works hard and I am not surprised that interest in him is growing," Amir Ruznic told Radio CRC.
"I'm aware that Napoli know him well, but up to this point nobody from that club has contacted me.
"That is, however, no obstacle to a deal being struck further down the line."
