Fiorentina look to Victor Valdes

Fiorentina’s search for a goalkeeper could take them to Barcelona and Victor Valdes.

The Viola are still not entirely convinced by Norberto Neto, as the young Brazilian shot-stopper is inexperienced and prone to errors.

According to Tuttosport, their next target in the January transfer window is Barcelona man Victor Valdes.

His contract with the Blaugrana expires in June and at the age of 31 he’d be ready to try a new experience in Serie A.

However, there is competition from other European sides, most notably Claudio Ranieri’s Monaco.

Another alternative is Julio Cesar, who had already been very close to Fiorentina over the summer before opting to stick with QPR.

He has made it clear he wants to leave London in January so that he can get enough playing time to earn his World Cup spot with Brazil.

Familiar with Serie A after so many years at Inter and accustomed to European competition, Julio Cesar would be an ideal addition for Vincenzo Montella’s side.
