Fiorentina Bring In Nzola and Christensen for Medicals

Fiorentina will have to wait a few days to onboard Lucas Beltran, who starred for River Plate as they were eliminated from the Copa Libertadores, while they sealed the deal for Oliver Christensen and M’Bala Nzola. Both players are in town for the formalities, Calciomercato relays.

The former Spezia striker will contribute to replacing Arthur Cabral. He already worked with Vincenzo Italiano in Liguria and at Trapani. The Viola will pay €12M. He bagged 15 goals last season, his most productive yet. Luka Jovic might head to Red Star Belgrade following the two acquisitions.

Nzola will compete with Beltran in their new-look frontline, while Christensen will attempt to unseat Pietro Terracciano between the sticks. The Gigliati picked him over Copenhagen’s Kamil Grabara and bested Lazio.

The 24-year-old moved to Hertha Berlin from Odense in August 2021. He was the full-time starter in the past campaign when his team got relegated. He allowed 68 goals and kept 3 clean sheets in 33 appearances. The shot-stopper comes in with a €5M price tag.

Our Take on Fiorentina Signing Nzola and Christensen

Two solid pieces of business, as the ex-Spezia marksman is a known commodity and will give Beltran time to adapt. They could have gone with a true prodigy between the sticks but stopped halfway there. He’ll have to do well early to usurp their veteran.
