Liverpool Close to Sealing £6m Napoli Deal

Tempting offer for Anfield flop.

Football - Fulham v Liverpool Barclays Premier League

The Rumour

Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena, who has had a disappointing time at Anfield, has been linked with a move back to Serie A.

The player’s agent, Roberto Laflorio, has now confirmed interest from Napoli.

“Napoli like the player, but if they want him they must speak with the British club first,” he told Radio Marte.

“I don’t know if the English club really want to sell him. I spoke with Andrea and he said if an offer from Naples comes then he will discuss it with his family.”

The Analysis

When Fabio Aurelio managed to accidentally injure himself at home it appeared that Andrea Dossena would be staying at Anfield, but perhaps not. Emiliano Insua has started both the last two Pre-season friendlies and perhaps the youngster is going to jump in front of Dossena in the queue.

There appear to have been a number of enquiries for the left back from his native Italy and this latest interest from Napoli may just tempt the 27 year old as unlike the potential move to Juventus, it may actually lead to regular first team football and perhaps re-assert his place in the international set up prior to the upcoming World Cup?

It seems Rafa can afford to sell the former Udinese man and the extra cash could come in handy for future additions.

The Likelihood

Dossena to Napoli: I think this could be the deal Andrea was waiting for.
