However, in spite of this and then making a first appearance of the season for La Blaugrana on Sunday evening against Valencia, reports are Fiorentina are in for his signature.
La Nazione are running the line that La Viola have a move for Dos Santos ‘taking shape’, working on an initial loan deal with a purchase option also included.
The Italian side reportedly see there being few obstacles in completing the deal in the next few hours.
