Ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez could be set to swoop for another of his former players in January after being linked to star defender Martin Skrtel, reports talkSPORT.
The newly-appointed Napoli manager had attempted to bring the 28-year-old Slovak to Italy during the summer, but failed in his attempts.
Liverpool have already allowed goalkeeper Pepe Reina to link up with his ex-boss at Napoli and the giant centre-back could be next after the recent arrivals at Anfield of Tiago Ilori, from Sporting Lisbon, Mamadou Sakho from Paris St. Germain, and Kolo Toure from Manchester City.
Benitez's Napoli side has had a fantastic start to the season, winning all four of their opening league matches, as well as battling to a 2-1 win in the Champions League over last season's runners-up Borussia Dortmund.
The Spaniard will be aiming for his side to be in the knockout round of the Champions League come February, and with this in mind will no doubt look to add extra strength during the winter break.
Skrtel's current Liverpool deal runs until 2016, meaning Benitez - who brought the defender to Anfield from Zenit in 2008 - will have to splash the cash in order the acquire his man.
