Udinese defender Felipe is said to be close to joining Fiorentina when the winter transfer window opens next month.
The 25-year-old stopper will cost approximately €9 million, which can be paid over three years, according to Novantesimo.it.
Despite the poor run of Zebrette results, the Brazilian has shined, and managed to capture the attention of some big Italian teams. Milan was at one stage linked with the defender, but unable to put pen to paper.
The Gigliati are quite active on the market, and Felipe's acquisition could be the first of many new arrivals during the January transfer period.
