Udinese president Franco Soldati said officials from Napoli were in the north-east to finalise the club’s move for the 26-year-old Colombia international.

“The deal is almost completed,'' he told Radio Kiss Kiss. “There are a few details to sort out before we will officially announce it.

“Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon is in Udine, and he is talking to the player's agent.”

Armero, who was signed from Brazilian side Palmeiras in 2010, has made 10 appearances in Serie A this season.
