Palmeiras defender Henrique has been pictured having a medical in Naples ahead of completing his move to the San Paolo.

Rafa Benitez’s side are reportedly paying €4m for the former Barcelona and Brazil player, who retains hope of a place in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s World Cup squad.

The 27-year-old has previously had loan spells at Bayer Leverkusen and Racing Santander whilst this move represents his first step into Italian football.
