RAFA BENITEZ is planning a TREBLE raid on old club Liverpool.

The new Napoli boss wants to bring Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and midfielder Lucas Leiva to Italy.

And if signing those three, who all played under Benitez in his six-year reign at Anfield, isn't enough, he's also eyeing up Barcelona star Javier Mascherano.

Mascherano starred under Benitez at Liverpool before being sold for £20m in 2010.

Benitez is hoping the offer of Champions League football and a Serie A title challenge will be enough to lure the quartet to Napoli, according to sources in Italy.

Benitez brought Agger to Liverpool in 2006 and is known to be a huge fan of the Danish centre-half.

Skrtel's future at the club is uncertain - the Slovakian has been linked with a move to Arsenal - while Brazil international Lucas has had a torrid time with injuries over the last couple of years.

Benitez, who spent seven months of last season in charge at Chelsea, was appointed the Napoli manager on Tuesday.
