Fulham midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is closing on a move to Napoli.
The Italian side have agreed a loan deal with Fulham with the option to make it permanent for around £9million.
The move represents a big opportunity for the 25-year-old, who impressed on his return to the Premier League last season and had attracted attention from Everton and Valencia.
Anguissa is due in Naples today ahead of a medical before signing for Luciano Spalletti’s side.

Napoli had targeted Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko but he is now joining AC Milan and Spalletti is understood to be pleased they have managed to bring in a midfielder of Anguissa’s calibre.
Fulham are trying to add a new midfielder themselves but have so far been rebuffed in their bids to sign Matt Grimes from Swansea City.
The Craven Cottage club had a £2.5m offer rejected at the weekend and are weighing up an improved offer for the 26-year-old who has one year left on contract.
Grimes is also attracting interest from former Fulham boss Scott Parker at Bournemouth.
