Liverpool have stepped up their pursuit of Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik, according to reports in his native Slovakia.
Former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez was keen on signing the 23-year-old playmaker during his time at the club. But it is thought his summer departure has done nothing to dampen Liverpool’s interest.
Damien Comolli, the club’s new director of football strategy, has reportedly identified Hamsik – often compared to Czech Republic legend Pavel Nedved – as a key transfer target.
Liverpool are not the only team considering an offer for the £12m-rated star, but Napoli insist no decision will be made on his sale until the end of the season. (TalkSPORT)
Now in his fourth season at Napoli, Marek Hamsik has become something of a cult hero at the Serie A side and the chances of Liverpool nabbing the Slovakian are extremely slim as the 23 year old has repeatedly claimed he is very happy in Naples.
The fact that Walter Mazzarri’s side are making real headway in their hopes for a long awaited title, Napoli are currently second to AC Milan in the table, makes a move to the Premier League even more unlikely. One can see why Roy Hodgson would be interested in the former Brescia man but I don’t see this one coming off.
The likes of Manchester United and Inter Milan are also said to be trailing the talented playmaker with an eye for goal.
