Rumours continue to persist that Rafa Benitez sent Napoli emissaries to Liverpool for Martin Skrtel.
The defender has been repeatedly linked with a bid by Napoli ever since Benitez took the job this summer.
According to Italian media, emissary Michele Mantovani was in England yesterday to ramp up negotiations with Liverpool.
The 28-year-old Slovak international could become available if Liverpool sign Mamadou Sakho from PSG.
