Fiorentina to announce three arrivals

Fiorentina could reveal the signings of Emiliano Viviano, Mounir El Hamdaoui and Francesco Della Rocca on Monday morning, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The trio have interested the Florence club for a while and deals are seemingly nearing their completion with their three respective employers.

The most significant of the arrivals is goalkeeper Viviano, who will return to the city of his birth if the transfer is pushed through.

He is currently co-owned by Inter and Palermo but with neither club assuring him of regular action, Fiorentina are expected to wrap up a loan deal.

El Hamdaoui, a Moroccan striker, should arrive on a permanent deal from Ajax although there are no suggestions as to the price that Fiorentina will have to pay. El Hamdaoui will be tasked with being the foil for the Viola’s Stevan Jovetic next season.

Della Rocca is co-owned by Palermo and Bologna but, like Viviano, should join Vincenzo Montella’s side on a loan deal.

Despite the three incomings, Fiorentina have doubts over Valon Behrami’s future after he rejected their initial proposal for an extended contract. Negotiations are expected to be on-going amid interest from Napoli.
