The Swans stated on their website that Fernandez has signed a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.
The 25-year-old passed a medical earlier this week, and he is expected to be in Swansea’s squad for their Barclays Premier League game against Burnley on Saturday, when manager Garry Monk will look to build on last weekend’s 2-1 win at Manchester United.
He joined Napoli in 2011 from Estudiantes for around €4 million, helping them land the Coppa Italia last season during a campaign when they also finished third in Serie A.
