Napoli are again looking good to complete the signing of Mario Alberto Santana after his Fiorentina contract expired.
His move seemed to be all wrapped up last month before Cesena and Juventus made late enquiries.
However, according to reports in the peninsula on Thursday, free agent Santana is now very close to officially becoming an Azzurri player.
The Argentine winger, 29, is expected to sign a two-year deal, possibly with the option for a third, worth €900,000 a campaign.
