Full back looks to restart his stuttering career back in Italy.
According to agent, Federico Pastorello, Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena hopes to return to Italy after having a tough time breaking into Rafa Benitez’s starting lineup.
“Napoli is following Dossena? I can only say that nothing has changed since the transfer window closed,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“I haven’t had any contact with [Napoli sporting director Riccardo] Bigon, but it is clear the player would like to return to Italy, because at Liverpool he is playing very little and he wants to be on a plane [for the World Cup] to South Africa.
“I hope after his injury he will be on the field in the Carling Cup. Andrea will do his utmost to regain a starting spot for Liverpool.”

You can’t blame Andrea from wanting to leave. He had a horrid first season at the club, albeit he managed to score two wonder goals in a week against Real Madrid and Man United, and now it seems he is further from the first team picture than ever. Fabio Aurelio and Emiliano Insua are bang in form at present and Dossena really doesn’t stand much of a chance of a game other than on Carling Cup nights so Rafa would do well to broach the issue and resolve it sooner rather than later and sell him back to Serie A.
I think the Italian showed glimpses of ability but was found wanting far too often, especially positionally, but he did always give 100% so I will wish him well when he does invariably head for the Anfield exit. The likes of Napoli and Juventus are reportedly very much interested in signing the Italian international.
