Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Reina have passed medicals at Napoli and will be presented to the ambitious Serie A club's fans on Monday night, according to president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Real Madrid striker Higuain, 25, is on the verge of signing a reported five-year contract at the Stadio San Paolo for a €40m fee while Liverpool goalkeeper Reina, 30, prepares to reunite with his former Reds manager Rafael Benitez on a season-long loan deal.

The duo were pictured heading for medicals at Rome's Villa Stuart sport clinic and Azzurri president De Laurentiis has now taken to Twitter to confirm a successful outcome for both players.

"Higuain and Reina have passed their medicals and will soon join the rest of the group," he said. "On Monday there will be a big party at the San Paolo. You will be able to get to know the new players and the new shirts"

Should the moves go through, Higuain and Reina could appear for Napoli against Arsenal in next month's Emirates Cup.

The pre-season event is being hosted by the Gunners, who have been strongly linked with a move for the Argentinian striker this summer, on the weekend of August 3-4. Porto and Galatasaray will also contest the mini-tournament.
