The 24-year-old has scored 18 goals in 80 appearances for Napoli since joining the club in the summer of 2007.

"At the moment there are logistical problems, that is to say he can't leave Liverpool because of the snow.
"The player will arrive on a permanent basis with a contract for four-and-a-half years."
