Napoli close to deal for Cagliari defender

Davide Astori CagliariNapoli are reportedly close to acquiring the services of Cagliari and Italy defender Davide Astori.

Sky Sport Italia are reporting that the two clubs met on Friday and are set to agree on a €13 million for Astori.

It is believed that he would sign a four-year contract with the Partenopei worth €1m per season.

Earlier last week, Cagliari president Massimo Cellino stated that he would let Astori  leave the club if he requested a move and it appears the Italian international has acted on those words.

The 26-year-old has been with the Rossoblu since 2008, appearing in 144 matches.

He also featured for the Italian national team over the summer during the FIFA Confederations Cup.
