Julio Cesar close to Fiorentina

Julio Cesar is reportedly on the verge of joining Fiorentina after Arsenal pulled out of the race for the QPR man.

The goalkeeper will leave QPR after their relegation and had already been in advanced negotiations for a move to Napoli, but that collapsed when the club wouldn’t meet his wage demands.

Fiorentina and Arsenal became the only real contenders for his signature and in the last 24 hours there have been reports the Gunners abandoned talks.

This leaves only the Viola, who are thought to be working out the final details with the 33-year-old after QPR accepted a €3m offer.

It’s either a one-year contract with option for a second or a two-year deal at lower wages.
