Fiorentina continue transfer assault with the capture of David Pizarro

The Chilean midfielder has become Viola's fifth signing of the summer, as the club's rebuilding process continues following the departure of captain Riccardo Montolivo
Fiorentina have made midfielder David Pizzaro their fifth signing of the summer, after he joined the club from Serie A rivals Roma.

The 32-year-old brings with him a wealth of experience in Italy, following spells with Udinese and Inter Milan earlier in his career.

Manager Vincenzo Montella has been quick to fill the void left by captain Riccardo Montolivo, who joined AC Milan in May.

The Fiorentina boss is more than familiar with the veteran midfielder, with the pair team-mates during their time at Roma and will be hoping his experience will be key on building upon a 13th place finish in Serie A last season.
