Fiorentina edging closer to capture of RNK Split starlet
The Gigliati are set to wave goodbye to Serbian forward Adem Ljajic after club president Andrea Della Valle confirmed that he will likely leave the club before the close of the transfer window.
As a result the Viola have stepped up their attempts to bring Rebic to Italy, and Sportitalia report that a deal between the two clubs is near completion.
The agreement would see the Gigliati pay €5 million for the 19-year-old to go along with 20% of any future sale and could be announced in the next few days.
Rebic, who has drawn interest from several clubs in England and Spain, has already made 50 appearances for the Reds and scored 16 goals.
