"After passing the medical examination, we can finally announce the acquisition of another great player for Napoli," the club president wrote.

"A purchase that enriches a midfield into one of the most complete possible, which will give the skilful hand of [coach Maurizio] Sarri chance to use multiple forms, from a midfield three to a midfield two depending on the teams in Italy and Europe.

"Welcome to Napoli, Rog."

The 21-year-old has won four caps for his country and was part of the squad that reached the knock-out rounds of Euro 2016 before losing to eventual winners Portugal.
