Fiorentina has made various attempts to persuade Genoa to let Gudmundsson go, however in the end, the Ligurians have come out on top.
The deal did not materialise, but a revival in summer is not out of the question. The situation is already set and Fiorentina’s move in this winter transfer window could potentially prove to be fruitful. With an understanding of Genoa’s stance, efforts to persuade them to let Gudmundsson go ahead of next season could commence from June onwards. The asking price is reported at £30 million (which may increase), but with a place in the Champions League on the horizon, Pradé could indeed have the striking power to seal the deal.
