Napoli have strengthened their squad with the signings of Christian Maggio and German Denis.

Maggio arrives on a five-year deal from Sampdoria to end months of speculation about his future.

The midfielder, who has also played for Fiorentina, is delighted to be joining Edoardo Reja's ambitious side.

"I'm happy to be able to play for such a prestigious club and I'm looking forward to the start the season," Maggio told the Italian press.

Napoli have also agreed a deal with Independiente for 26-year-old striker Denis.

Known as 'The Tank', Denis has an impressive goalscoring record and was a member of the Argentina squad for their first two World Cup qualifiers at the end of last year.

The transfer is expected to be finalised before the end of the week with Napoli set to pay Independiente around £9million for his services.
