Napoli have clinched the signing of Siena forward Emanuele Calaio on loan until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old becomes the second Napoli arrival in a matter of days, following in the footsteps of Colombian wing-back Pablo Armero.

He will initially ply his trade at the San Paolo on a temporary basis for the next six months, but the southern Italian club have the option to make his stay permanent in the off-season.

Walter Mazzarri’s side are understood to have beaten Torino and Palermo to Calaio’s signature, and his arrival is expected to speed up Eduardo Vargas’ return to South America.

The Sicily-born man originally joined Napoli in the 2004/2005 season and went onto score 44 goals in 128 appearances before falling out of favour and joining Siena three years later.

However, he regained his form at the Artemio Franchi, netting a further 50 times during his spell in Tuscany, and will now likely serve as Edinson Cavani’s deputy.
