Valencia defender Alessandro Florenzi is reportedly going to be acquired by Fiorentina from Roma in the summer despite his struggles with the Spanish club.
The 29-year-old left the Giallorossi for a loan spell with Los Che in January but he has only played three LaLiga matches and he was sent off in the 3-0 defeat to Getafe in early February.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Florenzi has given Fiorentina his approval for a transfer and Gigliati sporting director Daniele Prade is planning to make a deal with Roma for a loan with either an option or obligation to be bought outright.
The Rome-born full-back came through the Giallorossi youth system and established himself in the senior squad after a stint with Crotone in Serie B in 2011/12.
Despite being the Roma captain, Florenzi was not a guaranteed starter under new Lupi coach Paulo Fonseca and he remained on the bench during the 1-1 draw against Lazio in the Derby della Capitale.
