Napoli have completed the signing of Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old, who passed a medical with the ambitious Serie A club last week, has signed a reported five-year contract at the Stadio San Paolo with reports in Italy suggesting Real have received 40million euros (£34.5million) for the prolific frontman.

A statement published on Napoli's official website read: "Napoli have made the signing of Gonzalo Higuain official. The Argentinian striker arrives from Real Madrid."
