Fiorentina are planning an overhaul of their defence in the summer, with the likes of Nikola Milenkovic and German Pezzella likely to be sold and , Marash Kumbulla, and Andrea Cistana are expected to replace them.

Despite being the captain of the Viola, the Argentine’s form has been erratic throughout 2019/20, and the 22-year-old Serbian centre-back has attracted the interest of rival clubs in the past.

La Nazione reports that Rugani, Kumbulla, and Cistana are the defenders that Fiorentina intend to acquire for the 2020/21 season and the sales of Milenkovic and Pezzella will be used to raise funds for the new purchases.

Rugani is 25 years old and he has often been a reserve at Juventus since joining them from Empoli in 2015 so a move to could allow him to establish himself as a regular starter in another Serie A team.

The 20-year-old Kumbulla has been a revelation in the Hellas Verona defence while Cistana has been one of the bright spots for Brescia in what has been a dreadful return to Italy’s top flight for the Rondinelle.
