Juventus winger Marco Marchionni is ready to accept a move to Fiorentina.

Marchionni's agreement is expected to see Arsenal target Felipe Melo make the move in the opposite direction.

“Fiorentina are my first choice,” confirmed Marchionni. “I am only waiting for the details to be completed. I heard that many didn’t appreciate my comments when I said I would rather play for Juve in B than move to Florence.

“It’s not true, I never said that. I am running to Florence and delighted to join their project. They also told me that being a former Juve player I will need to go through a process of conversion to the Gigliati. I don’t mind, I am up for it.”
