Report: Maccarone's Fiorentina deal

There are reports Fiorentina have struck a deal for Palermo centre-forward Massimo Maccarone.

The Viola are on the look-out for a new striker and were linked with several options before settling on Big Mac.

Palermo confirmed earlier this week that Maccarone was on the transfer market during the January window.

Reports suggest the two clubs have already reached an agreement and are just waiting to make the deal official.

The former Middlesbrough star had been linked with Cesena, but was said to have turned down the move.
