Eight signings

The 30-year-old appeared in 132 Serie A games during five seasons at the Olimpico, 18 of them last season after being handed the armband. Zauri, who has been capped five times by Italy, previously played for AC Chievo Verona and Atalanta BC. He is the Viola's eighth summer signing after Alberto Gilardino, Stefan Jovetić, Jefferson Andrade Siqueira, Felipe Melo, Juan Manuel Vargas, Gianluca Comotto and Marco Storari. Fiorentina will enter the UEFA Champions League in the third qualifying round after pipping AC Milan to fourth place last term.
