Everton and Norwich City both sent officials to watch Napoli facing Benfica in the Champions League group stage last night.

As the home team thrashed the Eagles 4-2, this was a very good match to take positive points in case the English clubs were scouting the winning side.

CapturarNapoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini has been heavily linked to Everton lately, and he was reportedly a target for the Toffees during the transfer window.

But the player spent the entire game on the bench, as he saw his teammates Arkadiusz Milik, Dries Mertens and Marek Hamsik get on the scoresheet.

Benfica players Gonçalo Guedes and Toto Salvio, who scored for the away side, have been linked to an England move too, but not to any of these two clubs.

Norwich have already done business with Benfica this year, signing the striker Nelson Oliveira for an undisclosed fee.
