Fiorentina after Luiz Gustavo

Fiorentina are interested in a €10m swoop for Olympique Marseille midfielder Luiz Gustavo, according to reports in France.

The Brazilian turns 32 later this month and is still under contract until June 2021, but Marseille have serious financial problems and need to raise funds.

According to La Provence newspaper, Fiorentina have set their sights on Luiz Gustavo, who is available for around €10m.

Kevin Strootman would be on the market, but the club feels there’s a better chance of selling Luiz Gustavo quickly.

Lucas Ocampos was already sold to Sevilla for €15m, including performance-related bonuses, with Luiz Gustavo next on the way out.

The former Corinthians, Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg midfielder made 38 competitive appearances in the 2018-19 season, with four goals scored.
