Napoli expect to complete the signing of Espanyol defender Victor Ruiz today.

Ruiz is moving to Napoli in an €8 million deal, with Jesus Datolo signing permanently for Espanyol in part-exchange.

“We don’t have their level of certainty yet,” smiled Napoli director of sport Riccardo Bigon on Calciomercato.it.

“We are extremely close and within hours we could see a big development.

“I think, more than this evening, the decisive day will be Wednesday. We could finalise the deal some time tomorrow.”
