According to Le Télégramme, Rennes goalkeeper Benoît Costil has agreed personal terms with Fiorentina.
Rennes rejected a €1m offer from the Serie A side for the player last night, but Fiorentina will make an improved offer in the coming hours.
For a long time, Costil has dreamt about playing in Italy and has never received a contract extension offer from Rennes.
Cédric Carrasso and Paul Bernardoni (Bordeaux) and Vladislav Stoyanov (Ludogorets) have been earmarked as potential replacements by Rennes.
Abdoulaye Diallo has for the moment been blocked from joining Turkish side Rizespor as this situation develops.
As for Paul Nardi, his situation remains fluid. The player had been promised to be first choice at Rennes this season, and that could still be the case.
If not though, AS Monaco are already lining up a loan move to Standard Liege for Nardi.
