Fiorentina closing in on CSKA Moscow keeper Akinfeev

CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev is a target for Fiorentina.

Controcampo says Fiorentina sports chief Pantaleo Corvino is closing in on Akinfeev, who would arrive as a direct replacement for Sebastien Frey.

Corvino has a deal in place for Palmeiras keeper Diego Cavalieri, who is likely to go out on-loan next season, with Palermo mentioned as a possible destination.
