Manchester United are tracking coveted Napoli midfielder Mark Hamsik, and could make a move in January, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

Hamsik, who has been linked with United in previous years, is thought to fancy a change of scenery and, despite being Napoli's captain, is set to once become a firm target of the Red Devils.

David Moyes' side have endured a terrible start to their Premier League campaign and are thought to be readying themselves for a spending spree come January, with midfield one of the positions they are keen to strengthen.

Hamsik, a Slovakian international who has garnered 67 caps, has proven himself to be a consistently good performer at the highest level and already has five goals in nine games this season.

If reports in the French press are to be believed, Moyes could be ready to open the Old Trafford cheque book in order to raid Napoli for their star man.

Rafael Benitez is highly unlikely to be willing to allow his skipper to leave, particularly seen as though his side currently sit second in the Serie A, but may be tempted if the mooted €35million is offered.
