Napoli will sign Skrtel - Italian media reports

Napoli boss Rafael Benitez is set to land Martin Skrtel on loan from Liverpool one week after securing Pepe Reina for the season, CalcioSpot24 reports.

The £1.7m season-long loan deal will include an option to make Skrtel a permanent signing for £8.6m next summer.

Liverpool are looking to slash their wage bill and Skrtel is thought to be one of the highest earners at the club.

It would be Napoli's tenth summer signing having already spent £70m on the likes of Pepe Reina, Gonzalo Higuain, Jose Maria Callejon and Raul Albiol.
