Fiorentina will sell Mario Suarez to Watford on Thursday for €5.5m (£4.1m) plus bonuses, confirmed director Nicola Salerno.
There had been late competition from Valencia, but Watford appear to have finalised terms for the former Atletico Madrid midfielder.
“It’s true, we have found a breakthrough, but there are still some details to sort out,” Watford director Nicola Salerno told Radio Bruno in Italy.
“Tomorrow he should be here and we can finalise everything along with the medical. We did it.
“Is the fee €5.5m plus bonuses? Yes, that’s more or less accurate, but we have to wait because we haven’t made it all official yet.”
He failed to make an impact in six months in Florence and was often benched by Coach Paulo Sousa.
According to several Italian sources, Mario Suarez will be in England tomorrow for his medical and to sign the contract.
