Napoli boss Rafa Benitez is interested in the signing of Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson, according to the Daily Mail

The England international, who played under Benitez at the Reds, would cost in excess of £7 million if Napoli were going to bring the defender to Italy.

The ex-Reds and Chelsea boss is a big admirer of Johnson and could make a move for the star as he goes in search of a new right-back. 

Johnson has been a key asset to the Merseyside outfit over the past few years, but has so far struggled with injury this season. 

However the full-back will be hoping to fit for Liverpool's clash with struggling Fulham this weekend. 

The Reds will be desperate to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat to Premier League leaders Arsenal last weekend. 

The Merseyside outfit currently sit in third place in the table, with 20 points from their opening 10 games.
