Pandev will join the southern Italian side for one season after originally being linked with moves to Bundesliga club Schalke and Serie A outfit Genoa.

"I am very happy to be able to play the Champions League with a club like Napoli as they are a very important club," he told Sky Sports Italia.

Napoli reportedly missed out on securing a deal for Giuseppe Rossi from Villarreal, while Inter lose another striker following Samuel Eto'o's departure last week. Diego Forlan is rumoured to be in line with a move to the San Siro from Atletico Madrid to fill one of the vacant striking roles.
