'Musacchio would welcome Viola move'

The agent of Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio has conceded that his client would be keen on a move to Fiorentina.

The 23-year-old centre-back was revealed to be one of the player the Viola were looking at in the January transfer window in reports published on Wednesday.

And the Argentine’s representative has conceded that Musacchio would be interested in joining the Tuscan outfit.

“The boy would be interested in the Fiorentina project, “ Marcelo Lombilla told Lady Radio.

“But we are waiting for the Viola to make a concrete proposal.

“The player’s contract expires in 2018 and his market value is around €18m-€20m – so that’s how much they’d have to pay.

“At the moment, it’s probably a difficult move. But in June, who knows?”
