Spurs to make Benitez approach

Tottenham will make an approach for Napoli boss Rafa Benitez, reports in England and Italy have suggested.

The Metro newspaper and Sport Mediaset have claimed that the Premier League club will come in for the Spaniard, with Tim Sherwood set to get the sack.

The former Blackburn midfielder came in as interim boss before Christmas to replace Andre Villas-Boas.

But with results staying largely the same, chairman Daniel Levy looks set to give the Englishman his marching orders over the summer.

As such, the north London outfit are on the lookout for a new Coach, and have ear-marked the Partenopei man as a possible target.

Benitez has always been glowing of his praise for the Premier League after his successful spell at Liverpool.

But this approach for the former Valencia tactician is expected to be unsuccessful, with the 54-year-old only a year into his tenure at Stadio San Paolo.
