Napoli have moved swiftly to compensate the loss of Lavezzi, who signed for French club PSG for around £ 24 million. The Argentina striker has been linked with a move away from the club for the last couple of seasons.

It has become a reality this season, which has meant that Napoli were facing a crisis up front due to the fact that forward Cavani is also linked with a move to Chelsea. They have moved in swiftly to sign replacement for Lavezzi using the transfer money secured from PSG. Napoli have revealed that they have now completed the signings of former West Ham United midfielder Velon Behrami and Fiorentina player Alessandro Gamberini.

The Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that both players have been signed on an outright basis, thus meaning that Napoli have full control of their contracts. The Swiss international Velon Behrami has said that he is estimated that at the prospect of being able to join a club like Napoli. The 27-year-old is a midfielder, who can score goals as well. Meanwhile, the arrival of defender Alessandro Gamberini to the club will strengthen the defence according to the manager Walter Mazzarri, who helped the club reached the last 16 stage of the Champions League.

"It's a great feeling arriving at such a great club. I'm really proud to be at Napoli. Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is a very direct guy and someone who has great objectives. That's infectious as I now want to think big too," said Behrami. "Gamberini is a player who, like Goran Pandev, needs to be re-evaluated. He has some important experience and is an Italian international. Behrami is younger, a player who has always done well and has never thrown in the towel. He, like Gamberini, can cover a number of roles," Mazzarri said.
