Napoli Agree Deal to SIgn Luca Antonelli

Napoli have reportedly agreed to a deal to sign Genoa full-back Luca Antonelli for a fee of 8 million euros and the possible co-ownership of Emanuel Calaio and Alessadro Gamberini.

Italian source Gazzetta Dello Sport believed that the deal to sign the 26 year-old was agreed upon on Monday between the two club presidents at the last league assembly.

It is unknown whether Calaio and Gamberinin are already part of the deal but they could be added in to help reduce the transfer fee.

Napoli boss Rafael Benitez is definitely trying to reinforce his defensive line during January as he also has signed Anthony Reveillere on a free transfer.

Napoli are also looking for a defensive partner to link up with Spanish summer signing Raul Albiol with names such as Younes Kaboul and even Benfica star Ezequiel Garay.
