Marouane Fellaini 'wanted on loan'

ESPN FC's Prim Siripipat reports on the latest transfer rumours surrounding Javier Hernandez and Marouane Fellaini.

Napoli remain keen on signing Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini this summer but their valuation of the midfielder could prove to be a stumbling block, according to reports in Italy.

Fellaini, 26, only moved to Old Trafford last summer for 27.5 million pounds but endured a first season plagued by injury and underwhelming form.

Il Corriere dello Sport reports that, while United would like to sell the Belgium international outright, Napoli prefer the option of a season-long loan with an option to make the move permanent next summer as they are reluctant to stump up the reported 15 million pound fee.

Napoli's director of sport Riccardo Bigon is already on his way to England to thrash out a deal with the Red Devils, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, and the Belgian may also be making another transfer-related trip.

Bigon is also expected to pay Leverkusen a visit to discuss the possibility of signing Germany's World Cup winner Christoph Kramer, who is currently midway through a two-year loan spell at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Both players are high up on coach Rafael Benitez's wishlist as he looks to strengthen his side further for a Serie A title tilt this season. For that undertaking, the Spaniard is delighted to see Gonzalo Higuain cut short his post-World Cup vacation to report for preseason training.

"He's motivated," Benitez said at a news conference. "He was due back in Naples on Aug. 4, but he could be back on the second already because he cannot wait to get started."
