The 30 year old England international is well into the final year of his current Anfield contract and there is seemingly no sign of a new deal on the table and as such the former Chelsea and Portsmouth man may well be tempted by a fresh challenge.

Benitez brought in Johnson during his time in charge of Liverpool and sees the experienced defender as one of a host of players who could help improve his San Paolo squad.

Napoli failed to negotiate a path through the qualification stages of the Champions League and as such may have to look for cost effective options and are also said to be keen on Man City midfielder James Milner.

Brendan Rodgers signed Alberto Moreno to offer an alternative to Jose Enrique at left-back whilst Javier Manquillo signed on a loan deal from Atletico Madrid, and as such Johnson may well feel he doesn’t have much of a future at the club he joined back in July 2009.
