Napoli are ready to make a move for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini according to Corriere Dello Sport.

The Serie A giants were recently taken over by the former Chelsea interim boss Rafa Benitez.

The Spanish manager looks set to raid the Premier League for players as he looks to build Napoli into a team capable of beating Juventus to the Serie A title.

Napoli are reportedly ready to back Benitez with significant backing in the transfer market, especially if striker Edinson Cavani ends up leaving the club in what would be a £50 million-plus move.

Benitez has reportedly identified Fellaini as the man to provide Napoli with some midfield steel. The Belgian midfielder has made no secret of his desire to test himself at the highest level and is reportedly willing to talk to clubs who can offer him Champions League football.

Napoli may have to move fast though as reports in recent days have linked Fellaini with a move to Manchester United.

Fellaini’s former mentor, David Moyes, recently took over from Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford as is reportedly considering making a bid to bring Fellaini with him to United.

It is thought that Fellaini’s current deal at Everton contains a £25 million release fee clause.
