Boateng joins Fiorentina on two-year deal from Sassuolo
Ghanaian forward Kevin-Prince Boateng has officially joined Fiorentina from fellow Serie A side Sassuolo ahead of the start of the new season.
The deal was confirmed on Fiorentina’s official website, with the club paying €1m for Boateng, who has put pen to paper on a two-year contract.
The 32-year-old is vastly experienced after spells with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, Eintracht Frankfurt and Milan, winning a Scudetto and Supercoppa with the latter.
He scored five goals in 15 appearances for Sassuolo before spending the second half of last season at Barcelona, where he played four times without finding the back of the net.
He becomes the first major signing of the Rocco Commisso era at the Artemio Franchi.
