Paulo Vitor Barreto's proposed move from Bari to Fiorentina was called off following his medical, reports claim.
The attacker was all set to join the Viola after Bari, who part own him with Udinese, were prepared to sell their share for €4m.
It's understood that the two clubs agreed a deal but the switch was scrapped after the results of his fitness tests.
Barreto has endured an injury-hit campaign and the Viola medics, with just four months of the season left, reportedly urged caution given the uncertainty over when he will be fully fit.
