Fiorentina fight Milan for Muriel

While Milan are the favourites to sign Luis Muriel on loan from Sevilla, it’s reported Fiorentina are not giving in for the Colombian.

The striker is struggling for playing time in Spain this season, largely because Sevilla took Andre Silva on loan with option to buy from Milan.

A return to Serie A is expected for the ex-Sampdoria forward in the January transfer window.

It’s set to be a loan deal worth €500,000 with an option to buy at the end of the season for a further €13m.

While multiple sources in Spain and Italy suggest Milan are the hot favourites, Fiorentina are not giving up so easily.

According to Sport Mediaset, Viola director Pantaleo Corvino is preparing a new offer and hopes to sway Muriel.

They already know each other, as Corvino brought Muriel to Lecce in 2011.
