Toro push Giovinco to Fiorentina

A protest by Torino fans and the Juventus chance to sign Stefan Savic is pushing Sebastian Giovinco towards Fiorentina.

The Atomic Ant’s current contract is due to expire at the end of the season and negotiations on a renewal have hit a brick wall.

Torino had been tipped to snap him up in January, but during last night’s 2-2 draw with Palermo a large banner unveiled by ultras showed it is not a popular idea. It read: ‘We don’t want the Gobbo dwarf.’

Today the Gazzetta dello Sport claims Giovinco has given the all-clear to join Fiorentina after face-to-face talks with Vincenzo Montella.

In turn, Juve would also favour this move, as it’d allow them to request defender Savic as part of the deal.

The Viola need reinforcements in attack after serious injuries to Giuseppe Rossi and Federico Bernardeschi, while Mario Gomez is continuing to struggle with one goal over the last eight months.
