In Florence, the hearts of Fiorentina fans are pounding with concern after their star defender Yerry Mina suffered an injury that will keep him out of action indefinitely. The news has shocked the club, which is now hastily looking for solutions to strengthen its defensive line.
According to reports from Italian media La Nación, Fiorentina are exploring the free player market in search of a new centre-back who can fill the void left by Mina’s absence. One of the names that has emerged as an attractive option is the experienced Shkodran Mustafi, who became a free agent after leaving Levante on July 1.
Mustafi, 29, is a versatile defender with extensive experience in top leagues including the Premier League and Bundesliga. His ability to play in different positions within the defense makes him an interesting candidate for Fiorentina, who are looking for a quick and reliable solution in defense.
Are there any other options?
Mina’s injury has left a significant hole in Fiorentina’s defense and the club cannot afford to lose ground in a league as competitive as Serie A. Mustafi’s arrival could provide the stability and experience needed to stay strong. However, it should be noted that he is not the only candidate for the position, former Manchester United player Phil Jones is also on the list.
