Fiorentina swoop for teenage pair

Fiorentina have clinched deals for teenage winger Rafik Zekhnini and defender Petko Hristov.

Zekhnini is a Norway Under-21 international and plays for Odd in his homeland, with FirenzeViola.it reporting Fiorentina will pay €1.5m for the 19-year-old.

Furthermore, his agent Jim Solbakken told the website that his move will be made official “in the next few hours”.

Hristov, meanwhile, has joined from Slavia Sofia on a five-year contract.

Despite being just 18, the centre-back made 30 appearances for the Bulgarian club last season, while he is an U19 international for his country.
