Mounir El Hamdaoui is in Florence this afternoon to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms ahead of a move to Fiorentina.
The 27-year-old Moroccan international striker fell out of favour at current side Ajax during last season after unsuccessful attempts to force through a transfer last summer.
Having spent the entirety of 2011-12 training and playing with the reserve squad, El Hamdaoui is set to end his nightmare with a move to Fiorentina this transfer window.
La Viola have reportedly agreed a €800,000 deal to take the forward to Florence and are set to offer the player a €1.8 salary. He is in Florence this afternoon to undergo a medical too.
El Hamdaoui almost joined La Viola on deadline day of the January transfer market, only for technicalities over the method of payment to halt the move.
