The Spanish manager did bring Pepe Reina to the Naples-based club, while the likes of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel have also been linked with reunions with their former boss.
The latest report on talkSPORT regarding Napoli’s transfer movements is that Benitez is lining up a summer bid for ex-Anfield full-back Alvaro Arbeloa.
The Spain international is currently on the sidelines with injury, however he has been restricted to 13 La Liga starts for Real Madrid this term.
With Carlo Ancelotti predominantly preferring Dani Carvajal at right-back this term, Arbeloa’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu is under question.
The report states that Benitez is a big fan of the veteran defender and will test Madrid’s resolve with a bid at the end of the season.
