Octavio arrived on Friday morning to Florence and is set to undergo a medical in the next 24 hours before completing his loan switch from Botafogo.

"Octavio has arrived to Florence on Friday," Fiorentina announced on their website.

The 20-year-old began the 2013-14 season at Botafogo but struggled to break into the first team did and was sent on loan to Brazilian side ABC earlier this year.

The 20-year-old is under contract with Botafogo until December 2015.

Fiorentina, coached by Vincenzo Montella, finished fourth in Serie A and will compete in the Europa League in the 2014-15 campaign.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
