Rafa Benitez is looking to fortify Napoli’s Scudetto chances by adding a big name defender to his roster. The Spaniard has not been satisfied with his team’s defensive performances, in particular the game against Arsenal.
Adil Rami is on the shortlist, who is also being tracked by rivals AC Milan as well as Liverpool’s Slovakian international Martin Skrtel. Rami’s future is looking increasingly likely that his career will take a turn to Italy with Napoli taking his services into real consideration.
The most intriguing is Basel’s Swiss international Fabian Schar, who has turned in impressive performances in the Champions League. Despite being a defender, Schar has scored three goals in three appearances for his national team. Napoli will have to fight off interest from Arsenal and Inter Milan.
TuttoMercatoWeb reports that one of these purchases may go towards replacing either Federico Fernandez or Captain Paolo Cannavaro should they depart.
