Joaquin set for Fiorentina

There are reports Malaga’s Joaquin Sanchez is on a plane to Italy today in order to finalise his move to Fiorentina.

The deal had been done for some time, but Malaga opted to wait until the Liga season had been completed.

Malaga Hoy in Spain claim the 31-year-old is flying out this evening to undergo a medical and put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

Fiorentina are expected to pay €2m plus performance-related bonuses with a move that could become official within 24 hours.

Joaquin has been at Malaga for two years, scoring six Liga goals and three in the Champions League.
