Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri has backed their bid for Fiorentina pair Valon Behrami and Alessandro Gamberini.

The two players have undergone their Azzurri medicals and all that is missing are their signatures on contracts.

"It is not official yet, but they are players of a certain experience," Mazzarri said.

"Gamberini is a player who, like Goran Pandev, needs to be re-evaluated. He has some important experience and is an Italian international.

"Behrami is younger, a player who has always done well and has never thrown in the towel. He, like Gamberini, can cover a number of roles.

"He can play in the middle of midfield and on the wing. He is a player who can be very useful."
