Despite rumors about the potential departures of their star players such as Alberto Gilardino and Riccardo Montolivo, Fiorentina keeps on making their own moves in the transfer market, with the latest news suggesting they are close to announce the arrival of defender, Cesare Bovo.
The former Palermo player’s arrival has been expected by the Italian media in the last few days, especially after the Rossanero signed another defender, Mattias Silvestre, from Catania.
Latest reports from Italy claim that Bovo would be confirmed as Fiorentina player over the next 24 hours, probably right after he completed his medical at Florence, which supposedly will take place on Wednesday. The former As Roma player’s arrival would definitely be a welcome addition for the Viola’s defense as Alessandro Gamberini could very well use an experience player as his partner.
Bovo’s departure actually looked a bit surprising at first, since the fact that he has been a very important and consistent performer for Palermo, however it seems that Silvestre’s arrival was more than enough to convince the Sicilian club’s management in selling him. Meanwhile, for the Florence outfit, Bovo would definitely be a name that might redeem the fans’ concern over the club’s future as they looked to have lack of ambition this summer especially if Sinijsa Mihaljovic’s team do release Gilardino along with Montolivo.
