Everton closing in on Alessandro Florenzi

John Solano

Alessandro Florenzi is closing in on a move to Premier League side Everton.

Alessandro Austini of Il Tempo has reported that the Italian, who recently returned from his loan spell at Valencia, could depart in the coming days for Merseyside to join Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Before finalising the deal for Florenzi, though, Everton will first look to offload 23 year-old right back Jonjoe Kenny.

The feeling among the parties is that the deal will close for a figure between €10-12 million plus bonuses. The transfer would also allow the Giallorossi to get rid of Florenzi’s enormous €6 million (gross) in annual wages from their books.

The former Crotone-man has already spoken to his former teammate Lucas Digne, who also plays for the Toffees.
