Algerian left-back Faouzi Ghoulam is reportedly set to be sold by Italian giants Napoli in the January transfer window.
According to The Sun, Premier League sides Chelsea and Liverpool, as well as Italian champions Juventus, are set to battle over the defender’s signature.
Ghoulam’s contract at Stadio San Paulo runs out at the end of the current season and he has thus far refused to sign an extension.
Should the Algerian’s contract lapse, he will be able to leave Napoli as a free agent in mid-2018.
The Italian club is therefore likely to sell the player - albeit for a cut price - in January if they cannot convince him to pen a new deal.
Both Liverpool and Chelsea have been in the market for a left-back, and Ghoulam, 26, is a player in the prime years of his career.
