Marek Hamsik, 33, is set to sign a transfer deal with IFK Göteborg, in Gothenburg, southwestern Sweden.
Hamsik, who spent 12 years in Napoli with some time as the team's captain, signed with the Chinese football club Dalian Professional in 2019.
Yesterday, news broke that Hamsik had ended his contract in order to sign a three-month deal with Slovan Bratislava in his home country.
However, after issues with the Slovakian transfer window, contact was made with IFK Göteborg.
Negotiations are said to have begun earlier this week, and while a verbal agreement has been made, no contract is officially signed.
Sources tell SportExpressen the Slovakian footballer is set to fly to Gothenburg in the coming days.
