Official: Henrique joins Napoli

As expected, Napoli have officially signed Palmeiras defender Henrique with Faouzi Ghoulam to follow.

“Welcome Henrique!” wrote President Aurelio De Laurentiis on Twitter, accompanied by a picture of them together.

“Your experience and your quality will integrate perfectly with our great team.”

The now former Palmeiras captain is a Brazil international who passed his medical today and completed the €4m transfer.

He signed a contract tying him to the Serie A club until June 30 2017.

Ghoulam also had his medical after flying in from Saint-Etienne, but his contract has not been made official yet.

However, the midfielder posted a picture of himself in a Napoli shirt online.
