Benitez turns to Premier League giants for reinforcements.
Napoli coach Rafa Benitez is set to return to the Premier League in the new year to raid former club Chelsea, and London neighbours to acquire the signatures of Cesar Azpilicueta and Moussa Dembele, according to reports in Sports Direct News.
The Spaniard has got off to a good start to the season with the San Paolo outfit, and is now believed to be putting together a shopping list that will keep his side in the running for the Serie A title and he has apparently identified the Chelsea defender and Spurs forward as the key men to bolster his squad.
Benitez has been linked with a number of options for the right-back and central midfield spots for some time, with most currently plying their trade in the English top flight.
However, Azpilicueta and Dembele are said to be topping the list and he has been boosted by the fact that the latter will be available for the right price when the transfer window re-opens.
But a move for Azpilicueta may prove more difficult as the player admitted he is happy at the club after finding himself in the first team lately.
Although, the two men have worked together before and enjoyed a good relationship – something that Benitez will look to use to convince him to make the move to Italy.
