Andrea Dossena would like to return to Italy, according to his agent. The Liverpool left-back has recovered from a groin injury and could feature in the Carling Cup tie at Arsenal.
The 28-year-old was strongly linked with a move to Napoli this summer after just one season in the Premier League following his move from Udinese.
''It's clear that the player would like to return to Italy,'' Dossena's agent Federico Pastorello told Radio Kiss Kiss. ''He is playing very little at Liverpool and he doesn't want to miss the train for the World Cup.
''I hope that, having recovered from the injury, he will play tomorrow in the Carling Cup. Andrea, in any case, must do the maximum to return to have a regular spot at Liverpool.''
