Report: Gabi Milito has Napoli deal

There are reports that Napoli have secured a deal for Barcelona defender Gabriel Milito, beating Genoa to the punch.

The Argentine and brother of Inter striker Diego Milito (pictured) is eager to quit the Nou Camp, as confirmed by Coach Pep Guardiola.

He had already been linked with Genoa in the last few days, but new reports from Spanish newspaper As have a different view.

“Gabi Milito's transfer to Napoli is practically complete,” wrote the newspaper.

“The opinion of brother Diego was decisive.”

Napoli have said for some time they are looking for a left-footed defender who can play as centre-back.
