    The deal for the 20-year-old Franco-Algerian player is reported to be worth in the region of 10 million euros ($11.3 million), plus a bonus of two million euros.

    Ounas joined Bordeaux in 2013, signing his first professional contract with the western outfit in December 2015.

    After a successful 2015-2016 season in which he scored five goals in 23 Ligue 1 matches, Ounas was approached a first time by Napoli.

    He had less success season under coach Jocelyn Gourvennec in 2016-2017 with just three goals in 26 games as Bordeaux finished sixth in Ligue 1.

    But his temperamental character earned him a red card against Monaco last December and a fine and suspension within his own club.

    Napoli finished third in Serie A last season and compete in the Champions League play-off round.
