Marko Marin to return to Chelsea in January

German winger Marko Marin is set to return to Chelsea in January, with loan club Fiorentina prepared to terminate his loan deal early.

The 25-year-old completed a season-long loan move to the Italian club - with an option to buy - back in August. But Marin has failed to impress Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella and is subsequently expected to leave the club six months earlier than planned, according to Italian publication Corriere Mercantile.

Marin has not made a single Serie A appearance for La Viola; his four appearances for the club have all come in the Europa League - although in those four matches he did manage to score two goals.

Marin wasted at Fiorentina

One of the reasons Montella has been reluctant to field Marin this season is because of a change of formation. Fiorentina’s current system sees no room for conventional wingers - like Marin - hence why he has not featured this term.

But this begs the question: why did Fiorentina sign him on loan in the first place? Certainly Marin is a talented footballer, as he proved at Werder Bremen, Sevilla and, to an extent, Chelsea.

Another loan move likely

But the winger’s lack of action means the loan deal has been a waste of time for Fiorentina, Marin and Chelsea.

It’s likely that Marin will be loaned out again in January, but it’s unclear whether any Premier League clubs are interested in securing his services on a temporary basis.
