Napoli set for Higuain, Reina double swoop

24 July 2013 20:31

Napoli are closing in on the signings of Gonzalo Higuain and Pepe Reina, the club's president has confirmed.

The pair both underwent successful medicals with the Serie A side on Wednesday, and will now be unveiled to supporters at the Stadio San Paolo on Monday ahead of a friendly with Galatasaray.

"Higuain and Reina have passed a medical and soon will join the group," Aurelio De Laurentiis posted on Twitter.

Higuain brings his six-year stay at Real Madrid to a close by agreeing a move to Italy, having signalled his intent to depart the Santiago Bernabeu following the conclusion of the 2012-13 campaign.

The Argentine scored a total of 122 goals in 266 appearances for Real following his arrival from River Plate in December 2006.

Reina, meanwhile, is arriving on a one-year loan deal from Premier League side Liverpool, despite having long been linked with a permanent switch to Barcelona.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has brought in goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from Sunderland during the close-season and recently admitted the club were unable to support both players' wages.

De Laurentiis also stated that Napoli, who have already brought in Jose Callejon, Raul Albiol and Dries Mertens during the transfer window, will "not stop here".
