Napoli all-clear for Arbeloa

Napoli are reportedly close to signing Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa in January for €5m.

According to, Real have already given the all-clear to the transfer, as Carlo Ancelotti tends to prefer Dani Carvajal for the right-back role.

The price-tag is believed to be €5m, but it’s rumoured Arbeloa is not convinced by the idea of moving to Naples.

The 31-year-old would be reunited with fellow ex-Real Madrid men Gonzalo Higuain, Jose Callejon and Raul Albiol.

It’s reported Arbeloa’s entourage will meet with Napoli directors next week to discuss personal terms.
