Serie A: Napoli braced for defender interest

City defender Benjamin Mendy has been ruled out for the rest of the season after picking up a serious knee injury and reports claim they will try and land Ghoulam when the transfer window opens.

The Algeria international is set to fall out of contract at the end of the season, but as things stand there is no sign of him penning a new one and he could leave on a free transfer.

Napoli are keen to recoup some cash in January and are ready to let him leave for a cut-price fee, and City could swoop as Fabian Delph is currently being played out of position to cover for the loss of Mendy.

However Liverpool are also known to be in the hunt for Ghoulam and Reds boss Jurgen Klopp could battle Pep Guardiola all the way for his signature.
