Official: Napoli sign Tonelli

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has officially confirmed the signing of Empoli defender Lorenzo Tonelli.

The centre-back had his medical with the Partenopei last week, but the deal had not yet been officially confirmed.

However, De Laurentiis has now made the deal official, posting an image on his Twitter profile of Tonelli signing his contract with the caption "welcome Lorenzo Tonelli to the world of Napoli".

The defender becomes the Vesuviani’s first signing of the summer, and is already familiar with Coach Maurizio Sarri, having worked with the tactician at Empoli.
