Gattuso edges closer to Fiorentina job

Reports are continuing to gather steam that Gennaro Gattuso will leave Napoli at the end of the season to take over at Fiorentina.

President Rocco Commisso and Gattuso both hail from the Calabria region of Italy, and Commisso has said before that he wanted to hire Rino for his team.

The situation at Napoli seems to be beyond repair, as months of negotiations for a contract extension were suddenly shelved.

That was weeks ago and most media surrounding the club maintain there is no hope for Gattuso and President Aurelio De Laurentiis to patch up their rapport.

Instead, Tuttomercatoweb are confident talks with Fiorentina have been progressing well and a deal is imminent.

Gattuso will be given free reign to influence transfer strategy and revamp the entire squad, lowering the average age.
