Barone reveals Amrabat personal signing for Fiorentina owner Commisso

Fiorentina chief Joey Barone has welcomed Sofyan Amrabat from Verona.

Barone admits Amrabat's deal was a personal bet of club owner Rocco Commisso.

He revealed, “Since we played against Verona, Rocco has followed every game that Verona played, I know he is a player for next season, it was a very complicated situation but we managed to bring him to Fiorentina, and that's important.

“Beppe Iachini is doing an excellent job with the team, and now it will be a positive end to the season."

The Viola were one of the busiest clubs in the January transfer window, signing the likes of Patrick Cutrone, Duncan, Igor and Kevin Agudelo, whilst securing Christian Kouame and Amrabat for next season.
