Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin set to join Italian side Fiorentina
Reports from trusted and the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio website claim Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin is set to join Italian side Fiorentina on a season long loan deal with a €5m option to buy with bonuses.
The 25 year old German joined Chelsea from Werder Bremen for £7m in 2012 but has failed to muster a starting eleven spot for the Blues at Stamford Bridge. Marin spent the last season on loan at Spanish side Sevilla and his impressive performance helped the Andalusian club to win the Europa League beating Portuguese giants Benfica in the final.
Earlier we had reported that the player was increasingly likely to return to his homeland but its now evident that he will join Fiorentina with a medical imminent on Monday or at the most Tuesday.
Gazzetta Dello Sport have reported that the La Viola have managed to eke out a lightning fast deal to snap up Marin. The story claims that the Italian side enquired about the player on Saturday and reached out an agreement in the next 24 hours.
