Speculation is mounting that former Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi has chosen to join Fiorentina.
De Rossi was expected to wind his career down in Argentina or the US, but it was then reported last weekend that he had decided to stay in Italy.
Sportitalia journalist Alfredo Pedulla and Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nico Schira are now claiming the veteran has accepted an offer from Fiorentina.
Schira elaborates that he will sign a one-year contract with the Viola, reenergised by Rocco Commisso’s recent takeover.
The Italian World Cup winner turns 36 next month and is a free agent after leaving Roma in May.
