Marin undergoes Viola medical

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.
