Pezzella: 'I spoke to Pioli'

German Pezzella has arrived in Italy to complete his loan with €10m option move from Real Betis to Fiorentina. “I spoke with Stefano Pioli.”

The Argentine centre-back landed in Milan this afternoon and spoke to Sky Sport Italia.

“I spoke with Pioli. I’ll be glad to play with (Giovanni) Simeone, as he’s a friend. I am ready, Joaquin spoke highly of Fiorentina.”

Pezzella just turned 26 in June and had only recently signed a new contract with Betis in May.

He is expected to undergo a medical with the Viola staff tomorrow.
