Chelsea midfielder Mario Pasalic is increasingly close to a Serie A return for Fiorentina.
The 23-year-old already had Italian experience at Milan in 2016-17 and spent this season on loan at Spartak Moscow.
According to RMC Sport, the reports of interest from Fiorentina have intensified considerably over the weekend.
Pasalic is under contract with Chelsea until June 2021, so it would presumably be a loan deal, but they could get an option to buy.
The Croatian is seen as the heir to his fellow countryman Milan Badelj in the Viola midfield.
