Fiorentina are reportedly in advanced negotiations for Chelsea’s German creative midfielder Marko Marin.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the Viola are already at a good stage in talks with the Stamford Bridge side.
Their sources even suggest a medical could be organised within the next few days.
The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Sevilla, meaning he has won the last two editions of the Europa League.
Fiorentina hope to make the most of his experience in that tournament as well as in Serie A, where Mario Gomez could help him settle in.
He doesn’t have a place at Chelsea and they would be happy to sell him just two years after his arrival from Werder Bremen.
