Watch out Spurs: Ex-Liverpool boss "100% sure" of a signing this week


Rafa Benitez has claimed that his Napoli squad is set to be bolstered in coming days with a new player.

Napoli have been linked with a host of Premier League players of late, with strong rumours that the San Paolo club are interested in adding Tottenham’s Etienne Capoue to their squad.

The Naples-based outfit are thought to want to strengthen in January in their bid to push for the Serie A title, with a number of their targets believed to be plying their trade in England.

Rafa Benitez has stated that he expects at least one new face to be added to his playing contingent in the near future, with a move in the pipeline over the next couple of days.

“I am sure 100 per cent that the president will do something this week,” the Spanish manager said.

“I am certain of it. Tomorrow? We still have a few days to work and sort things out, but we’ll do at least one or two moves this week.

“I only talk about my own players, not those who are at other clubs.”

Other notable players that have been linked to Napoli in the January window include Michael Essien and Daniel Agger, but just who Benitez is talking about remains to be seen.

Links to Capoue continue to pop up in the Italian media, despite the fact that the France international only moved to White Hart Lane in the summer.
