Reds close in on Serie A playmaker.
Liverpool are said to be leading the race to sign in-demand Napoli playmaker Marek Hamsik ahead of their rivals, according to Fichajes.net.
The Slovakian international has been one of Serie A’s finest midfielders in recent years, and is also wanted by Chelsea and Manchester United as he may be available for around £30m this January.
However, Liverpool are keen to keep signing players in attack despite also bringing in Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic this summer, with these new signings failing to settle so far.
Hamsik is proven at the top level with a great goalscoring record from midfield for Napoli, and the 27-year-old’s technical ability should see him fit in well at Anfield.
