At the start of this month, Firenze Viola reported Southampton, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli have ‘asked for information’ about Bartłomiej Drągowski.
The goalkeeper’s contract at Fiorentina expires in 2023 and the summer window will be the Serie A side’s last chance to earn money from his sale.
According to Meczyki, the 24-year-old will leave La Viola and ‘move to Southampton’ after this season.
The Poland international started the campaign as the club’s No.1 keeper, until he suffered an injury last October. After regaining full fitness, he lost his place to Pietro Terracciano in the starting lineup.
He was then restricted to two starts in the Coppa Italia, taking his overall appearances to nine matches this term.
Due to the current situation, it is a ‘foregone conclusion’ he will move elsewhere. The report states Drągowski has ‘chosen a new club’, and that’s Southampton.
The custodian received offers from clubs in Spain, but he ‘decided that England would be a better direction’ for his career, where he will join Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side.
At St Mary’s Stadium, Drągowski will find his compatriot, Jan Bednarek, who has been representing the Saints since 2017.
