Fiorentina Eye Alternatives if Villarreal Succeed for Livakovic

However, the Viola’s efforts are at risk, as Spanish dark horses Villarreal eye a mutual target in Croatia ace Dominik Livakovic.

The Dinamo Zagreb keeper is one of the many targets shortlisted by Fiorentina – West Ham United’s Alphonse Areola, Lecce’s Falcone, FC Koln’s Timo Horn, FC Copenhagen’s Kamil Grabara and Lazio’s Luis Maximiano to name a few. However, a latest €10M bid by Villarreal for is set to shake any Viola advances for Livakovic.

Corriere dello Sport (via ViolaNews) reports that if the Yellow Submarines succeed in signing the 28-year-old, Horn and Grabara would overtake as Fiorentina’s priority. However, Terracciano’s second-in-command Michele Cerofolini is expected to gain more playing time in 2023/24 despite the club’s intention to sign another keeper.

Fiorentina were believed to have made a proposal worth €6M for Livakovic, with Dinamo considering the offer too low. Fenerbahce are also active in the race for the Croat shotstopper.
