Merida set for Crotone move?

Osasuna midfielder Fran Merida is set to leave the club this summer following their relegation to join Serie A side Crotone.

A report in Sportitalia suggests the former Arsenal youth graduate will join the Calabrese club this summer with Osasuna keen to trim their squad and readjust their financial budget.

Merida, who has also had spells at Real Sociedad, Braga, Atletico Madrid and Atletico Paranaense, scored once in 15 appearances at El Sadar last season but is now set to leave Spain.

Crotone produced a remarkable turnaround in the final six weeks of the campaign to save their top flight status in Italy, having been promoted for the first time the previous summer.
