Benitez Targets Two Liverpool Stars

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez is plotting a double raid on former club Liverpool in January, according to sources in Italy.

Benitez's new side are flying high in Serie A at the moment - they're second in the table and unbeaten after six games - and he is eyeing January additions in an attempt to strengthen their title tilt.

talkSPORT told you last week that he is keen on Martin Skrtel, who has recently worked his way back into Brendan Rodgers' plans at Anfield after being frozen out in the second half of last season.

But the Spaniard is also planning to revive his interest in Lucas Leiva, the midfielder he brought to Merseyside from Gremio in 2007.

Benitez was a firm admirer of the Brazilian during his time at Liverpool and frequently defended the anchorman from criticism.

However, he could struggle to land Lucas as the 26-year-old is now an integral member of Brendan Rodgers' first team.
