Fiorentina have completed the capture of striker Alberto Gilardino from Milan. Gilardino, who signed at the San Siro from Parma in 2005, has penned a five-year contract with the Viola. The 25-year-old is expected to be officially unveiled as a Fiorentina player on Thursday in a deal in the region of €13million (£10.4million). Gilardino, who failed to secure a place in the Italy squad for Euro 2008, will rejoin former Parma team-mate Adrian Mutu and manager Cesare Prandelli at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
