Liverpool ex boss Rafa Benitez eyeing deal for Martin Skrtel



NAPOLI are eyeing up a deal to bring another Liverpool stalwart to Serie A.

Liverpool's Martin Skrtel
Italian paper Il Mattino claims the Italian giants, who recently sold Edinson Cavani to PSG, want to strengthen their backline.
And Martin Skrtel, is the man they want to help strengthen their squad with.
The 28-year-old is the second player being targeted by ex Reds boss Rafa Benitez, having already sealed a deal for Pepe Reina.


“Martin Skrtel is a transfer target for Napoli”
The new Napoli chief signed Skrtel back in 2008, in a deal worth £6.5m from Russian side Zenit Saint Petersburg.
The Slovakian is facing added competition from former Manchester City star Kolo Toure and emerging star Andre Wisdom for a starting place.
If Liverpool do decide to let Skrtel go, it could speed up the team's bid for Greek star Kyriakos Papadopoulos, who's been a long-term target of Brendan Rodgers.
The north west club will have to pay around £13m to secure his services, who is regarded as a star player in the Schalke 04 squad.
