Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has been installed as the favourite by bookmakers to sign Reds defender Martin Skrtel in the summer transfer window, having been appointed Napoli manager.
Skrtel said last month that he would give serious consideration to leaving Merseyside before August's transfer deadline after enduring 'one of the worst' seasons of his career last term.
The Slovakian centre-back lost his regular place alongside Daniel Agger in January - with Brendan Rodgers favouring Jamie Carragher - and the signing of Kolo Toure has placed hos position with Liverpool in doubt.
The 28-year-old was signed for Liverpool by Benitez in the January transfer window of 2008, and the ex-Reds boss would now appear keen to make Skrtel one of his first signing since moving to Naples.
Arsenal have also been credited with interest in Skrtel, while a move to Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg has been mentioned as a possibility.
Zenit have been made the second favourites to sign Skrtel at 9/2, while the Gunners are slightly further back in the running with Sky Bet at 8/1.
Barcelona are the other side listed among the contenders to sign Skrtel, with the Primera Division champions a long shot at 20/1.
