Former Liverpool man nearing permanent Napoli exit
Despite returning to Napoli after a loan spell with relegated Palermo last season former Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena looks set to depart Naples as the club continue to negotiate his transfer to Parma.
After being virtually ever-present in his previous two seasons in Naples Dossena struggled to retain his place in the Napoli first-team last season making just seven league appearances before leaving for Palermo. With Rafael Benitez arriving as coach, it is believed Dossena would find playing time to be even more limited next term.
Although the Spanish coach signed the defender in 2008 whilst with Liverpool he was unconvinced by the Italian and he spent the majority of the season on the Anfield bench before departing for the Azzurri the following year.
