Empoli set Mevlja deadline

Empoli have reportedly set a deadline of Monday to either get the Miha Mevlja transfer sorted from Zenit or drop the move.

The loan switch was agreed on deadline day and the registration was made in time, but due to technical issues, the fax didn’t come through until two minutes after the cut-off point.

According to, Empoli have set themselves a rule that if the situation is not resolved by Monday, then they will give up on the deal entirely.

It had been a big coup for the Serie A minnows as the 28-year-old centre-back is a Slovenia international who was purchased from Rostov for €8m in the summer of 2017.
