Napoli coach Rafa Benitez has welcomed new signing Henrique.

The former Barcelona defender is arriving from Palmeiras.

Benitez said: "Nobody has told me is a Napoli player yet, so we have to wait. He is a player with quality who can play in defence or midfield, so is a versatile figure. If he becomes our player over the next few hours, then he will become important for Napoli.

"Riccardo Bigon is doing a great job and we have changed many players this season because the director has done wonderful work. We'll wait and see what happens over the next couple of days."
