Napoli are closing in on a €18m deal for SPAL forward Andrea Petagna, but the 24-year-old will remain in Ferrara for the rest of the season.
The Partenopei have been in talks with the struggling Ferrara outfit for a number of days over a deal for Petagna.
Sky Sport Italia and Il Corriere dello Sport both report that a deal is close to being finalised between the clubs.
Napoli will pay €18m for Petagna, but will leave the striker on loan at SPAL as they struggle to stay in the top flight.
The striker joined from Atalanta on loan in the summer of 2018, however SPAL made the deal permanent last summer.
He scored 16 goals in Serie A for the struggling side last season, and had scored eight this season.
