Amidu Salifu (born September 20, 1992 in Accra) is a Ghanaian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Modena F.C., on loan from ACF Fiorentina.

Club career[edit]

Vicenza Calcio[edit]

Salifu started his youth career with Italian club Vicenza Calcio and made his debut with the senior squad in the 2010–11 Serie B season before going on to sign for ACF Fiorentina in January 2011. He made 8 league appearances for the biancorossi prior to his transfer.

ACF Fiorentina[edit]

Following his transfer to the Firenze-based club, Salifu was hardly utilized as a first team member. The young midfielder made his Serie A debut for Fiorentina on 23 April 2011 in a match against Cagliari, when he came on as a 90th minute substitute for former club captain, Adrian Mutu.[1] He would eventually go on to make an additional 12 appearances throughout the 2011-12 Serie A season, before being loaned to Calcio Catania in June 2012. He has made 11 appearances in all competitions for the club since his arrival, generally serving as a reserver for the likes of Sergio Almiron, Francesco Lodi, and Marco Biagianti.
