Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed on their official website that they have secured the services of Ezequiel Lavezzi from Napoli for an undisclosed fee. The Argentina international has signed a contract with PSG until the summer of 2016.
The Ligue 1 giants were eager to add a high-profile name to their attack ahead of the 2012-13 campaign, and head coach Carlo Ancelotti has now signed his desired reinforcements.
Speaking at his official unveiling, Lavezzi spoke of excitement of the “project” currently underway at Parc des Princes, adding that this is a step forward in his career to move the to the Paris club.
"PSG is a club of the future... The sporting project seduced me,” he told reporters.
“It's a sporting progression [to join PSG]. Paris is a dream city to live in".

Sporting director Leonardo added that the future of the club “is truly rich”, before elaborating: “It's a very important day for the club, a great day in the club's history.”
Lavezzi started his professional career with Estudiantes and also played for Genoa and San Lorenzo before eventually joining Napoli in the summer of 2007. The Argentina international had since developed into one of the Partenopei's star players.
However, he informed club president Aurelio De Laurentiis of his desire to move on earlier this year as he wanted a new challenge, and will ply his trade at the Parc des Princes in the new season.
The attacker joins compatriot Javier Pastore at PSG and will be wearing the No.11 jersey in the French capital.
