Fiorentina are closing in on their latest summer signing, as Marko Marin arrives in Florence for medical tests.
Reports emerged over the weekend that La Viola had struck a deal with Chelsea to take the attacking midfielder on loan with a purchase option in place for the 2014-15 season.
The 25-year-old arrived in Florence this morning and was pictured by Fiorentina at Careggi hospital undergoing medical tests ahead of completing the deal.
The player arrived and completed the check-ups without making statement and is expected to then move on to club headquarters to put pen to paper on a contract to finalise the deal.
Marin, who was with Sevilla last season, will reportedly have a majority of his wage for the coming season funded by Chelsea.
