Fiorentina Leading the Competition for Empoli Starlet

Juventus and Lazio set sights on Fabiano Parisi, but Fiorentina have done the most legwork to onboard him at the moment. The 22-year-old has logged 2 goals and 2 assists in 34 appearances in the past season. Despite his president’s recent words, he’s highly likely to depart, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

According to Pianeta Empoli, the Viola have lodged a concrete offer and jumped ahead of the Bianconeri. The capital side is mulling different targets. It remains to be seen whether the deal could expand to other players, for instance Aleksa Terzic or Alfred Duncan.

Fiorentina chased after Parisi last summer but didn’t reach an agreement. Furthermore, Empoli didn’t want to sell. Instead, they’d rather complete the transfer before the start of the pre-season retreat this time around. They would be content to send him to the highest bidders.

The dynamic fullback was one of the few Azzurrini that saved face despite the early elimination from the U-21 European Championship.

Our Take on Fiorentina and Parisi

Nothing wrong with adding strength to strength, but they already have one of their most trusted players, Cristiano Biraghi, in such a role. They have more urgent needs elsewhere. Perhaps the future of the veteran isn’t so certain. He has strong ties with Inter, which will need a specialist if Robin Gosens leaves.
