Napoli are poised to complete a double swoop on Serie A rivals Fiorentina for Valon Behrami and Alessandro Gamberini.
Both players have been given permission to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical.
It is expected that deals will be struck and that the two transfers will be pushed through on Monday.
Switzerland international Behrami joined Fiorentina in January 2011 from West Ham United.
The versatile 27-year-old is set to pen a three-year contract in Naples.
Italy international Gamberini, meanwhile, is expected to agree a deal that will tie him to Napoli until the summer of 2016.
A statement from Fiorentina read: "After the negotiations undertaken by ACF Fiorentina and SCC Napoli, our players Valon Behrami and Alessandro Gamberini have been authorised to undergo medicals with Napoli."
