The midfielder signed a five-year contract with Napoli earlier this month to seal his €10 million move from Dinamo Batumi.
Transfermarkt, a reference website for player values from across the world, showed the current market value of the Georgian winger at €15 million. Last year Kvaratskhelia became the Most Viewed Player on the website.
Kvaratskhelia played for Dinamo Batumi after leaving the Russian side Rubin in April.
