Riccardo Sottil has officially extended his contract with Fiorentina to June 2026. ‘I arrived here as a child and now I am a man.’
The wide attacker came up through the Viola youth academy and has now settled at the Stadio Franchi following some loan spells at Pescara and Cagliari.
A statement confirmed Sottil has signed a new contract through to June 2026.
The 22-year-old is the son of former Fiorentina defender and current Ascoli coach Andrea Sottil.
“I am certainly proud to have extended my contract, especially as I came up through the Fiorentina youth academy,” Sottil told the club website.
“I arrived here as a child and now I am a man. I must thank Fiorentina for helping me to mature. The club has faith in me and I must repay that on the pitch now.
“We are on the right track and must keep going like this.”
