Palermo striker Edinson Cavani to join Napoli

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed that striker Edinson Cavani will join Napoli if he can agree personal terms with the club.

Cavani had been linked with Tottenham after performing superbly in Uruguay's run to the World Cup semi-finals but will now join Palermo's Serie A rivals in time for the new Italian season.

Palermo were reluctant to sell to a club who finished just one place below them in the Serie A table last season but felt compelled to do so as Cavani was desperate to leave La Favorita.

"The agreement between Napoli and Palermo was found," Zamparini told Radio Kiss Kiss. "Now they are negotiating with the player's agent over the details. Cavani is now in Uruguay and then the leaders of Napoli will go there for the signatures. With the arrival of Cavani, Napoli will aim high.

"I'm sorry to strengthen a direct competitor, but Cavani absolutely didn't want to stay in Palermo because there were unfortunately a couple of unpleasant incidents, and we promised to sell him."
