Fiorentina set to sell Silva to Boca Juniors

Fiorentina are selling striker Santiago Silva to Boca Juniors.

The Viola was already looking for a new forward after selling Alberto Gilardino to Genoa, but teammate Silva is set to follow.

"Santiago Silva's departure? He is all ready to join Boca Juniors," agent Pablo Betancourt told Firenzeviola.it.

The 'Tanque' has been in Florence for only six months, but failed to settle, scored only one goal and is not even included in the squad for tomorrow's Coppa Italia match against Roma.

Boca have prepared a €1.7m offer to Fiorentina with two-year contract for the player.

"Everything should be in place and we can't wait to see him on the field," Boca director Jose Requerjo told Terra.com.ar.

"We are very close to a positive resolution."
