Fiorentina Scour Transfer Market for Terracciano Successor

Pietro Terracciano is no longer assured of a starting spot in Vincenzo Italiano’s Fiorentina XI. The Viola have accelerated their search for a new goalkeeper in the transfer market, strengthening Terracciano’s exit links after a heartbreaking season where the club lost both the cup finals they were engaged in.

Latest reports from Corriere dello Sport indicates that Fiorentina have two names shortlisted as their priority to succeed the ex-Empoli man between the sticks; West Ham United’s Alphonse Areola is being targeted alongside Dinamo Zagreb’s Dominik Livakovic and FC Koln’s Timo Horn.

All keepers are in impressive form at the moment, making either one a worthwhile investment for Fiorentina.  However, despite possessing similar price tags, Areola could cost more, given that his contract with the Conference League winners expires in the summer of 2027. Whereas Livakovic will see his contract end with Dinamo Zagreb only at the end of next season. Atleast €10M would be required to sign either one.

Horn’s contract with Cologne expires in a few days, making him a potential free transfer.

Fiorentina, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LabaroViola), also like Lecce shotstopper Wladimiro Falcone. The newly-promoted minnows in turn have Terracciano in their crosshairs, which might facilitate a deal between the two clubs.
