NAPOLI boss Rafa Benitez is being linked with a move for Saints midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.

The St Mary's star, 24, was this week included in France's list of stand-by players for the forthcoming World Cup after another impressive Premier League season.

Schneiderlin, who signed for Saints six years ago this summer, is contracted to the club until 2017.

The Daily Mirror claim former Liverpool and Chelsea boss Benitez is keen on Schneiderlin as he aims to build on Napoli's third place finish in Serie A this year.


After all the main tabloids had Mauricio Pochettino on their back pages yesterday, there is hardly a mention of the Saints boss in the red tops this morning wit regards to the now vacant Tottenham job.
