Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is tipped to leave Anfield in January.
The Daily Star claims the Slovakian international has been backed to make a move away from Merseyside in the New Year, with Napoli looking to bring the player to Italy.
Rafa Benitez, who worked with the player during his time at Liverpool, was eager to bring the player to Serie ‘A’ in the summer, but missed out on the 28-year-old.
However, Corriere dello Sport claims the Spaniard has a list of possible loan targets, with Skrtel still on the club’s radar.
Liverpool strengthened their defence during the summer transfer window, with Mamadou Sakho, Kolo Toure and Tiago Ilori all brought in by manager Brendan Rodgers.
That raised questions over Skrtel’s future with the Reds, and he admitted that options were still open.
"Anything is possible. There are alternatives, but my priority at the time is to recover from my injury," he said, according to the paper.
And Skrtel went on to impress in Liverpool’s win over Manchester United, which may well affect the club’s thinking on his possible Anfield exit.
