Fiorentina look set to sell Christian Kouame to English Wolverhampton Wanderers and they could replace the Ivorian with Bologna winger Riccardo Orsolini.

The 23-year-old has struggled to perform in Florence, scoring just one goal in 24 matches in 2020/21 so far, but this has not dissuaded Wolves, who want to bring him to the Premier League.

According to La Nazione, Fiorentina want €18 million for Kouame and the club from the West Midlands look the most likely to pay that figure.

It will not be the first time that Kouame has attracted interest from the Premier League he was close to a to Crystal Palace while he was at Genoa but the transfer fell through after he suffered a knee injury.

I Gigliati plan to replace the Ivorian with Orsolini from Bologna, who the Felsinei value at €17m but €15m will apparently be enough to persuade Rossoblu president Joey Saputo.
