The powerful Belgian midfielder is unlikely to be a player Andre Villas-Boas would consider offers for but that hasn’t stopped Benitez from targeting the former Fulham man as well as Barcelona battler Javier Mascherano and Liverpool defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva.

Napoli will be keen to make the most of the club’s impressive start to the campaign and Benitez will be handed significant funds to strengthen his squad.

The San Paolo side sit in third spot just four points behind leaders Roma, this despite seeing the club’s top scorer leave to join PSG over the summer.

Tottenham paid Fulham £15m for Dembele back in August 2012 and the 26 year old has since made 61 appearances for the club, scoring two goals in the process.
