Napoli move for Catania's Mascara

MILAN - Second-placed Napoli boosted their attacking options for the Serie A title run-in by signing Catania striker Giuseppe Mascara on transfer deadline day on Monday.

A club statement said the forward, barely a regular in Sicily this term, had penned a deal until 2013.

Mascara will be a backup for Serie A's leading scorer Edinson Cavani given Cristiano Lucarelli has a long-term injury.

New Napoli defender Victor Ruiz, who signed from Espanyol last week, was also presented to the media on Monday.
