Dossena: Napoli offer
Andrea Dossena's prospective Anfield exit is a step closer after Liverpool accepted an offer from Napoli, according to the player's agent.
Dossena is believed to be keen on a return to Seria A after struggling to make an impact in England following his move from Udinese last summer.
Reports suggest Napoli's offer is in the region of 5million euros (£4.3m), a significant loss on a player boss Rafael Benitez paid 10million euros for just twelve months ago.
Representatives of the Italy international have suggested the offer has been accepted and Dossena is expected to complete the move later this week.
"Liverpool have accepted (Napoli chairman) Aurelio De Laurentiis' offer," his agent told Radio Kiss Kiss.
"It's now just a matter of days. The two clubs are in agreement, Liverpool accepted Napoli's offer but I can't say any more.
"With regards to Andrea there are no problems, it's only a matter of days. As soon as Napoli call us, we will finalise it."
Dossena is likely to find himself even more surplus to requirements following the arrival of Glen Johnson on Merseyside, but with Alvaro Arbeloa closing in on a move to Real Madrid, Benitez may find his full-back options limited next season.
