Napoli enter race to sign Leighton Baines

Everton manager David Moyes faces a battle to keep talented left-back Leighton Baines after reports in The Daily Mail claim Italian side Napoli are now interested.

The 27-year-old has again been linked with a summer move away from Goodison Park but the Everton officials value the England international at around £20million, a fee that Napoli may be unwilling to pay.

In recent days, there has been renewed interest from Manchester United who were reportedly preparing a bid for Baines this summer, though chief executive David Gill insists that no approach has been made.

Baines was subject to a £12million bid from German side Bayern Munich last year though Everton managed to keep hold of him.
