Fiorentina have confirmed that they have agreed to take Barcelona forward Keirrison on a two-season loan deal.
The Serie A outfit have moved quickly to find a replacement for striker Adrian Mutu, who faces a lengthy ban for failing a drugs test.
La Viola have already snapped up teenager Haris Seferovic from Grasshoppers but are now set to complete a second signing.
Keirrison joined Barcelona from Palmeiras last summer, but was immediately loaned to Portuguese outfit Benfica.
“ACF Fiorentina announce they have reached an agreement with Barcelona for the signing on a temporary basis of striker Keirrison de Souza Carneiro for two football seasons,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
“The deal will be finalised after he passes his medical which will take place tomorrow.”
Fiorentina also have the option to sign Keirrison on a permanent basis should he impress during his time in Serie A.
