Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello is expected to have a medical with Fiorentina tomorrow or Friday, as he turns down Watford.
The shot-stopper had been considering several proposals during the January transfer window.
While Walter Mazzarri’s Watford were very interested in his services, Sky Sport Italia, Mediaset Premium and Sportitalia are all confident a deal has been struck with Fiorentina.
Sportiello is due to be in Florence for a medical tomorrow or Friday.
The 24-year-old will then sign an 18-month loan agreement with the Viola retaining an option to buy.
