The next transfer news: another move from the Ljudski Vrt to Italy. This time, the departure of a 16-year-old forward. After a year and a half of the NK Maribor football school, Nino Kukovec (born 6 May 2001) is leaving the Ljudski Vrt and moving to Florence.

In the previous season, he shot 15 goals for our cadet selection, while this year he joined the juniors and achieved six goals in ten matches in the Slovenian Junior Football League. He also played in all the six matches in the UEFA Youth League (488 minutes altogether).

‘The deal has been concluded. Nino will continue his path in Fiorentina. We wish all the best for him in his future career and thank him for his trust,’ Zlatko Zahovič, Sports Director, confirmed the transfer.
