Viola to sign Olivera and Pizarro

Fiorentina have reportedly agreed deals for Lecce’s Ruben Olivera and Lanus midfielder Guido Pizarro.

The Viola already had Ajax’s Mounir El Hamdaoui in the stands for today’s 2-1 win over Siena, as he flew in from Amsterdam to complete his transfer, while Amauri made his debut in that game.

It is widely reported that Olivera has played his final game for Lecce, as he will be in Florence on Monday for a medical.

The Uruguayan is ready to sign a contract until June 2014 in a move worth €1.5m.

Argentinean club Lanus posted a notice on their official website this evening confirming Pizarro is on his way too.

“Now we can say that Guido Pizarro is a Fiorentina player, as the negotiations have been successful.”

The 21-year-old central midfielder is believed to be worth €3m.
