White Hart Lane captain wanted by Serie A side.
Napoli boss Rafa Benitez is looking to lure defender Michael Dawson into leave Tottenham this summer according to Football Direct News.
The Serie A side have apparently already registered their interest in the 30 year old who may be tempted by a fresh challenge, not least as a move to the San Paolo would lead to Champions League football for Dawson.
Benitez has targeted Man United veteran Nemanja Vidic but the Serbian opted to sign for Inter Milan though the former Liverpool manager may well have better luck in his pursuit of Dawson.
Spurs paid Nottingham Forest £8m for Dawson back in January 2005 in a combined deal that saw Andy Reid also move to the north London club and the England international has made a total of 305 appearances for Tottenham and has four national team caps to his name.
