Vlad Chiriches was rumoured to be near to completing a loan move to Fiorentina over the weekend, but their Serie A rivals Napoli look like they’ve beaten them to a deal and it’s good news for Spurs.
While Fiorentina were offering a loan deal with an option to make the move permanent, the Telegraph claim that Napoli will pay a straight fee of £4.5m. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.

I'll always like Chiricheș, for some reason. Can't shake the feeling there's a real player in there, somewhere. Serie A is a great fit #THFC

We're probably going to get rid of Adebayor and Chiriches in the same week… Let that sink in.

Chiriches – another who seemed clueless as to what and why he'd joined #thfc

Transfer fee for Chiriches: 6m euros. Medical check today. Transfer to Napoli could be announced within hours. #thfc
