Fiorentina done deal for Shakhtar Donetsk right-back Dodo

Shakhtar Donetsk

Multiple sources in Brazil and Italy claim Fiorentina are on the verge of a €15m plus bonuses deal for Shakhtar Donetsk right-back Dodo.

The 23-year-old was first purchased from Coritiba in January 2018 and had a loan spell at Vitoria Guimaraes in 2018-19.

He had provided four assists in 26 games before the Russian invasion of Ukraine put an early end to Shakhtar’s season, where he was working under former Sassuolo coach Roberto De Zerbi.

Also targeted by Barcelona, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich in recent months, Dodo is on the verge of a move to Fiorentina.

Sportitalia, Globoesporte and UOL Sport all maintain the Viola are close to finalising the deal for €15m plus performance-related bonuses.

The situation in Ukraine has seen the price-tag drop significantly from €25-30m just last year.

Dodo has been keeping himself fit with a personal trainer and working with Coritiba in Brazil, the club that launched his career.
