Reports in Spain suggest Napoli are just hours away from completing the transfer of Espanyol defender Victor Ruiz.
It's no secret that Napoli are in talks to sign the highly-rated 21-year-old centre-back.
El Mundo Deportivo claims the deal could be worth as much as €8.5m.
It will apparently be structured in two parts.
First, Napoli will pay Espanyol €6m in cash for Ruiz.
Second, they will offer 50 per cent of Jesus Datolo's playing rights, which are said to be worth €2.5m.
Napoli had planned to reinforce their defence in January.
A serious injury to Gianluca Grava made that need imperative.
