After passing his medical, Josip Brekalo has now officially signed for Fiorentina on a permanent transfer from VfL Wolfsburg.
It’s a return to Serie A for the Croatian international, who had already played on loan in Turin last season with seven goals and two assists in 33 Serie A games. The player chose the number 77 shirt and confirmed yesterday to reporters that he usually wears the 7, so he wanted to choose a number representing his desire to “double” his previous performances. The 24-year-old has joined Fiorentina, although he has also attracted interest from Napoli, Udinese, Monza and Spanish team Getafe.
