Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena is set to complete a move to Napoli in the coming days after his agent confirmed a deal is all but finalised.
Dossena, 28, has struggled to make an impact in England since his 2008 move from Udinese and he had been expected to leave Liverpool this month.
Reports in Italy this week have suggested a deal in the region of £4.5 million is on the verge of completion and now the player's agent, Roberto La Floria, has confirmed the rumours.
"I believe the player will arrive in Napoli tomorrow (Wednesday)," he told Tuttomercatoweb. "At the moment there are logistical problems - that is to say he can't leave Liverpool because of the snow.
"The player will arrive on a permanent basis with a contract for four-and-a-half years."
A deal would be a major boost for Rafael Benitez, who is understood to be looking to offload several fringe players to provide funds to strengthen the squad during the transfer window.
