Bournemouth are on the verge of completing the deal to sign midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli. Castrovilli who features in Fiorentina is all set to fly to England for his medicals and contract signing on Friday. Castrovilli has been associated with Fiorentina since 2019 and has been playing regularly for their first team.
The 26-year-old is now moving to Bournemouth for the next season this summer.

Bournemouth had already signed Romain Faivre from Lyon to strengthen their midfield and this time added Castrovilli to reinforce that sector as well.
Gaetano Castroville is set to join Bournemouth for €12m
Castrovilli returned to Fiorentina last season after having a serious injury which made him appear in only 26 matches but this time is all set to start his Premier League career. The Italian is all set to be signed by Bournemouth for €12m plus bonuses.
Castrovilli will be making his way into the Premier League for the first time. This would be a big breakthrough in his career after his return from the injury last season. He has been impressive all through this year with his skills in the midfield and is now picked by Bournemouth as they are looking for a stronger midfield this season.
Castrovilli started his career with Bari, a Serie B side in the year 2014. He made a total of 12 appearances scoring zero. The Italian then was signed by Cremonese on loan for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons. He appeared on 55 occasions scoring 6 goals for the side. He then made his big move to Fiorentina and made his appearance in Serie A.
He played four seasons for the side and appeared in 125 matches scoring 13 goals. He made a comeback last season from an injury he suffered and went on to play just 26 matches. In November 2019, he was also handed his first Italy cap by CT Roberto Mancini during a Euro 2020 qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was part of the Italian side which won the Euro 2020. He made four appearances for his national side but is sidelined from the side since 2021.
