Alessandro Matri is currently undergoing a medical at Fiorentina with his loan move set to be completed within hours.
The striker arrived in Florence from Milan late on Tuesday evening, admitting that the switch was only missing ‘the details’.
And the Viola have revealed via their Twitter account that the forward is currently being examined by doctors, with the transfer likely to go through before the end of the day.
Matri will sign for Vincenzo Montella’s men until the end of the season as the Artemio Franchi look to ease their striking woes.
Injuries to Mario Gomez and Giuseppe Rossi have curtailed Fiorentina’s European ambitions, with both men suffering long-term knocks.
