The Spaniard guided his Naples side to a third place finish in Serie A last term, and won the Coppa Italia, and will see his contract with the Italian club expire this summer.

However Benitez has refused to enter talks on a new deal in the hope that his former Anfield employers come calling.

Should Liverpool fail to secure a top four finish then perhaps Benitez feels he could be considered a replacement for the Northern Irishman though this source also states that Newcastle United are also open to the idea of welcoming the 54 year old back to the Premier League.
