The southern Italian outfit have found an established name to fill the vacancy between the posts...
The shot stopper never settled in Sevilla since joining the club in 2007 and was subsequently loaned to Galatasaray for the 2008-09 campaign, where he enjoyed some success, being called up as Italy third-choice goalkeeper on a number of occasions.
Napoli have reportedly beaten off competition from Genoa for his signature and the 32-year-old will sign a three-year deal with the Partenopei.
De Sanctis has also played for Pescara and Juventus during his career, but his best spell was with Udinese, where he made a name for himself with over 200 appearances between 1999 and 2007.
Napoli have already signed Fabio Quagliarella this summer and are looking to reinforce the squad after falling well short of expectations this past season.
