Official | Fiorentina sign Alban Lafont from Toulouse

Serie A side Fiorentina have announced the signing of Toulouse goalkeeper Alban Lafont for a fee believed to be around €9m.

The young goalkeeper has been highly rated for a number of years since his arrival into the Toulouse first team three years ago at the age of 19, but he will now cross over to Italy in the purple he has worn his whole career, albeit this time in the purple of La Viola of Florence.

After making over 100 appearance for Toulouse and surviving multiple relegation battles along the way, the 19-year-old will look to assert himself as one of the top young goalkeepers in Europe alongside fellow Serie A player Gianluigi Donnarumma, and continue his development.

The France U20 international had been linked with moves to Premier League sides Arsenal and Crystal Palace, but has chosen to join the Serie A side to work with fellow highly rated young goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski.
