Udinese goalkeepers Alex Meret and Orestis Karnezis will reportedly have their Napoli medicals later this week.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the pair will check into Villa Stuart on Wednesday or Thursday, before signing their Napoli contracts.

The Partenopei had been hoping to sign Meret and Karnezis for a combined €30m, but a deal for the Italy Under-21 international alone is expected to reach €35m with bonuses.

They will replace Pepe Reina, who has joined Milan on a Bosman free transfer, and Luigi Sepe, with the Neapolitan close to Serie A new boys Parma.
