Fiorentina Working on Multi-Player Deal with Empoli

Fiorentina haven’t stopped pursuing Nedim Bajrami despite recently signing Antonin Barak. They are in advanced talks with Empoli for a deal that would include Szymon Zurkowski and potentially Christian Kouamé too.

As per Alfredo Pedullà, Sassuolo are keen on the Albanian playmaker as well, but the Viola have the priority. He would transfer elsewhere or stay only if they turned down the possibility of signing him. But the deal is at a good point. The Neroverdi are closing in on Armand Laurienté, who is their top target for the role.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Fiorentina offered €5/6M plus Zurkowski for Bajrami. The Pole would return to the Azzurri for a third spell, but this time on a permanent deal. Instead, Kouamé would join on loan if inserted in the package. He’s also drawing interest from other sides, for instance, Brighton, which are proposing different formulas, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

On top of working on their midfield, the Gigliati wish to add a defender down the stretch. They are trying to purchase Dimitrios Nikolaou from Spezia through a partial swap involving Matija Nastasic, Sky relays. The parties are negotiating the numbers. The Aquilotti have snatched Ethan Ampadu from Chelsea to replace their defensive cornerstone.

Our Take on Fiorentina Chasing After Bajrami

The Viola aren’t messing around after punching their ticket to the group stage of the European Conference League. They are going after more established players than in the recent past, but the fees are reasonable. The newcomer would probably feature more as a winger, where they are thinner, than as a box-to-box. Nikolaou isn’t superb but would be better than Nastasic, who has been a non-entity since joining.
