Fiorentina have made no approach for Josip Ilicic of Palermo. “It’s a journalistic invention,” noted his agent.
The midfielder has been paired with a future switch to Fiorentina, allegedly at the request of Viola Coach Delio Rossi.
The latter bossed the Slovenian with success during his time on the Rosanero bench and a reunion in Tuscany has been suggested.
“Ilicic is a great player and therefore it is nice to know that he is wanted by other clubs,” representative Amir Ruznic noted to Viola News.
“However, let’s not talk about any negotiations. It’s the journalists who are linking Ilicic with Fiorentina…
“There have never been any talks with Fiorentina. All of this is just journalistic invention.”
