In the midst of the January transfer window, Fiorentina forward Josip Brekalo continues to be a hot topic in the transfer market. After links with Olympiacos and Dinamo Zagreb, a new player has entered the fray, with Hajduk Split reportedly making a proposal for the Croatian international.
Brekalo’s potential departure from Fiorentina has been widely speculated, and the 25-year-old forward has several options on the table. Initially, Serie A clubs Salernitana and Bologna expressed interest in securing his services, but recent developments suggest that Brekalo might be eyeing a move abroad.
Dinamo Zagreb appeared to be frontrunners, having seemingly reached an agreement with the player. However, they surprisingly changed their stance, leaving the door open for other suitors.
Olympiacos FC then entered the scene, presenting a proposal to sign Brekalo on loan with an option to buy at the conclusion of the season. The Greek club’s interest added another layer to the ongoing transfer saga.
The latest twist in the tale comes from Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, who reports that Hajduk Split has also joined the race for Josip Brekalo. The Croatian forward, who made a €1.7 million move to Fiorentina from VfB Wolfsburg in January 2023, could potentially return to his home country if a deal with Hajduk Split materializes.
Brekalo, who had a previous loan stint with Torino in Serie A, has contributed one goal in 18 competitive appearances for Fiorentina this season.
