Cesare Bovo may finally complete his expected move from Palermo to Fiorentina at some stage over the next 24 hours.
Bovo will be sold by the Rosanero after they signed centre-back Matias Silvestre from Palermo this month.
After links with Roma and Genoa, the former Italian Under-21 international will ultimately end up in Florence.
Bovo and his agent will hold talks with both clubs at some stage today to conclude all the final details.
Bovo is expected to have his Viola medical on Wednesday before taking part in his first training session with his new teammates.
