After QPR's relegation, it is was obvious that Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar would be heading towards the Loftus Road exit door with Arsenal showing interest.

However it now looks like Italian club Napoli look set to beat them to the signing of the Brazil international.

The player's agent, Josias Cardoso, has admitted Napoli and Arsenal have shown the most concrete interest in Cesar and only a few details are needed for the transfer to be completed.

Arsenal and Villarreal have both shown interest but it looks like Napoli have won the race for the signature of Cesar.

The Brazilian enjoyed seven years in Italy with the Italian giants Inter Milan, and it looks likely he will face his old club next season if he does opt for Napoli over Arsenal and Villarreal.

"It's not all done yet, there are many possibilities (he goes to Napoli), but there are some details to be resolved between the player and Napoli," Cardoso told

"When will the signature arrive? I don't know, it could be today, or in a few days.

"The Villarreal interest? There has been some interest from Spain, but nothing concrete.

"The only two concrete tracks are Arsenal and Napoli."
