European transfer talk: Coentrao, Ambrosini and Belfodil

Fiorentina Flag

Transfer targets for Liverpool, Chelsea, West Ham and a former Manchester City player all feature.

Fiorentina have finally put an end to their goalkeeping situation with the signing of Uruguayan goalkeeper Gustavo Munua. The Levante stopper will arrive on a free transfer at the end of the month and signs a deal until 2015.

They are also on the verge of signing Massimo Ambrosini on a free transfer from AC Milan.

Santos have poured doubt over the potential re-signing of former club favourite Robinho from AC Milan. The Brazilian international has been widely expected to be on his way back to the Brazilian outfit this summer after they sold Neymar to Barcelona. But right now it seems Santos are not comfortable with the fees being quoted.

Veteran striker Luca Toni is set to join former team-mate Adrian Mutu at French outfit AC Ajaccio this summer. The striker will be released by Fiorentina when his contract expires and new Ajaccio coach Fabrizio Ravanelli wants him in Ligue 1.

Despite assertions from Cagliari that Belgian international Radja Nainggolan was not for sale Inter Milan are again being linked with the player today. He would set the Nerazzuri back around €12 million.

Italian reports suggest that Inter Milan are willing to offer Antonio Cassano to Parma in an attempt to sign Ishak Belfodil from the club this summer. MacDonald Mariga could also be used as a makeweight in any potential deal.

Fabio Coentrao is being distanced with a move to Portuguese club Benfica - by the outfit themselves. The Real Madrid player was being linked with a return to the Lisbon club this week but they have cast doubt over the potential to afford him.

Hoffenheim have completed the deal of Norwegian international Tarik Elyounoussi. The 25-year-old has been in good form at the start of the season and has signed a £2.25 million deal.

Hannover have snapped up Leonardo Bittencourt from Borussia Dortmund. The 19-year-old has spent one season at Schwarzgelben but has now decided to move on once again.
