According to various French media outlets, St Étienne’s full back Faouzi Ghoulam will be signing for Serie A side Napoli in the next 24 hours.
Napoli have had a bid of €5.5m (including bonuses) accepted by St Étienne and the player is currently finalising personal terms. He is expected to leave France for a medical shortly.
Meanwhile, St Étienne have agreed to loan left-back Benoit Tremoulinas from Dynamo Kiev until the end of the season as a replacement for Ghoulam. There will be no option to buy in this loan deal. The player had been offered to Bordeaux, several days ago.
