Napoli to buy after Ruiz sale

After selling Victor Ruiz, Napoli could now swoop for two new defenders before the transfer window closes.

Ruiz, signed from Espanyol in January, has joined Valencia for €8m on a five-year deal after just six appearances for the Azzurri.

With Ruiz gone and Miguel Britos injured for two months, the Stadio San Paolo outfit are expected to bring in at least one new stopper.

Ignacio Fideleff, 22, of Newell's Old Boys has been associated with the Italian outfit this morning. However, Salvatore Bocchetti of Rubin Kazan is also an option.

"I can confirm that we are talking with Napoli," Bocchetti's agent, Andrea D'Amico, told Radio CRC.

"It's not an easy operation to complete and a lot will depend on Napoli's desire to do it. I'm waiting for developments."
