Fiorentina sign Marco Benassi and Valentin Eysseric on long-term deals

Fiorentina have announced the signing of midfielders Marco Benassi and Valentin Eysseric from Torino and Nice respectively.

Benassi, 23, a former Italy under-21 international, has joined the Viola on a five-year contract for a reported fee of €10 million, subject to a medical on Thursday.

He will fill the void left by the departures of midfielders Borja Valero and Matias Vecino to Serie A rivals Inter.

A statement on Torino's official website read: "President Urban Cairo wishes to thank Marco for his dedication, commitment and professionalism in the past years and all at Torino FC wishes him the best satisfaction in the continuation of his career."

Meanwhile, 25-year-old Eysserin joins on a contract until 2021 after scoring eight goals and assisting seven more to help Nice finish third in Ligue 1 last season.
