Fiorentina have announced the signing of Kevin-Prince Boateng on a two-year deal from Serie A rivals Sassuolo.

Boateng joined Sassuolo as a free agent in 2018 after his brief spell in the German Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt ended. 

He was limited to 15 games in the first half of the 2018-19 campaign where he scored five goals before Barcelona signed him on loan.

The 32-year-old failed to impress in Ernesto Valverde's team, making just five appearances in all competitions for the Spanish giants, with no goals scored.
