Joaquin to seal Fiorentina switch

Joaquin Sanchez is reportedly flying out to Italy today to finalise a move from Malaga to Fiorentina.

The winger is seen as one of a number of high profile stars at La Rosaleda likely to leave this summer amid the club’s reported ambition to change tact in the transfer market.

Malaga Hoy report that the 31-year-old is on the verge of agreeing a move to Serie A and to Fiorentina and will travel to Tuscany today.

The player is seen as due to undergo a medical with La Viola before signing off on a contract believed to be three years in length.

Malaga will reportedly receive a total of between €2m and €2.5m depending on variables relating to performance of the club and player.

A deal could be reached and announced within the next 24 hours.

Joaquin has spent two years at La Rosaleda, appearing 54 times for the Anchovies in La Liga, scoring six times. Last term also saw the winger net three in the club’s Champions League campaign.
