Celta Vigo go for Rossi

Fiorentina striker Giuseppe Rossi is heading back towards Spain for Celta Vigo rather than Villarreal, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The forward had been linked with a return to his former club.

However, this afternoon’s reports claim it is Celta Vigo who are targeting Pepito Rossi as a replacement for Nolito.

The clubs are believed to be discussing terms and it could be worked out within days.

It's reported the deal with Celta Vigo would be a one-season loan for the final year of his Fiorentina contract.

He'd then agree terms for an option to sign another one-year contract with the Spaniards from 2017.
