Chelsea loan Marin to Fiorentina?

Reports are increasing that Fiorentina are on the verge of taking Marko Marin from Chelsea.

The rumours first emerged last night on Sky Sport Italia and have been gaining traction over the last few hours.

The deal is expected to be a loan with option to buy for €5m (£4m) at the end of the season.

During the loan spell, Chelsea would pay a portion of his €2.1m per season wages.

It's believed Marin could even arrive for his medical on Monday or Tuesday.

There are also suggestions Vincenzo Montella was already scouting Marin during the Europa League Final between Sevilla and Benfica in May.

That was played in Turin at the Juventus Stadium with Montella in the stands.
