It’s reported Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fernando will fly in for a Fiorentina medical over the weekend.
The 22-year-old Brazil international has only been in Ukraine for a year, but is eager to leave due to the unstable political situation in the country.
According to Firenzeviola.it, a deal has already been struck between the two clubs for a transfer at around €8m.
Fernando is expected to arrive in Italy over the next few days for a medical and to sign the contract.
He has eight senior caps to his name with the Seleçao.
