Andrea Conti is moving closer towards joining Fiorentina with talks well underway between the two clubs, reports claim.
According to the latest from MilanNews, Conti wants to find consistent playing time and he cannot do that at the moment given he is behind Davide Calabria and Diogo Dalot in the pecking order.
The transfer studied by the two clubs and the player’s entourage is that of an 18-month loan with an obligation to buy. Conti’s contract is set to expire in 2022, but this transfer method would allow Fiorentina to make a definitive purchase, but spreading the sum over several years.
The two clubs are continuing their talks to agree terms economically and thus allow Conti to leave after three-and-a-half year.
Meanwhile, Sky and il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) are also reporting that in the coming days the contacts between Milan and Fiorentina will continue for understand the feasibility of the operation.
The latter adds that two clubs are negotiating the formula, which could be a loan with obligation set at €7m. The dialogue is open and the player would have given the green light to move to Florence.
