Kouame: 'I was going to England'

Fiorentina winger Christian Kouame has revealed he was on his way to the Premier League before rupturing his ACL. ‘It was my destiny’.

The 22-year-old moved on loan to the Viola in January and made his €11m move from Genoa permanent in September.

He has signed a deal until June 2024 but reveals it could have been a different story had he not injured his ACL last season.

“I was about to go to the Premier League,” he said. “But Florence was obviously in my future and I’m very happy to be here now.

“I think rupturing my ACL was a sign of my destiny.”
