Marko Marin is currently undergoing a medical in Italy ahead of a proposed season-long loan move from Chelsea to Fiorentina, talkSPORT report.
The 25-year-old has struggled to adapt to life in England and has failed to make a real impact at Stamford Bridge, making just six first-team appearances for the West London club despite completing a move back in 2012 from German side Werder Bremen.
The exact fee Chelsea paid Bremen for the German is unknown, but he signed a five-year deal at the club. He has clearly failed to live up to expectations, however, and is now set for another season out on loan.
Marin spent the 2013/2014 season in Spain with Sevilla, where he made 18 appearances but failed to net a single goal.
Serie A switch
The news broke when the Serie A side, who finished fourth in the table last season, published a statement via their official Twitter account, confirming that the midfielder was in Italy and was undergoing medical tests ahead of the proposed loan-deal.
The statement read: "Pending official, Marin is conducting a medical examination".
The message was accompanied by a picture of the midfielder on a doctor's table being examined.
It's believed the two clubs may have already agreed terms for the loan switch and an official announcement and unveiling could take place later on today.
The signing of Marin could be bad news for Fiorentina fans, however, as it may see Juan Cuadrado depart the club.
The Colombian international, who impressed in Brazil during the World Cup, is currently being monitored by Manchester United, Chelsea and Barcelona, with Louis Van Gaal previously thought to be the favourite to sign him in a whopping £36 million deal.
