Fiorentina closing deal for Barcelona defender Erick Ferigra

Fiorentina are closing a deal for Barcelona defender Erick Ferigra.

Sky Italia says though the 17-year-old is from Ecuador, he holds a Spanish passport and would therefore not have to be used as one of the club's non-EU player if he progresses to the first team.

Following the return of sporting director Pantaleo Corvino from Bologna, he made promises that the club would invest heavily on youth and the future and that has led him to Ferigra.

On Monday, Ferigra is set to travel to Florence for his medical, after which he will be officially presented as a Fiorentina player.
