Aleksandr Kokorin digging in heels at Fiorentina

Aleksandr Kokorin is digging in his heels at Fiorentina.

Viola management are eager for the striker to move on.

But agent Timofey Berdyshev told FirenzeViola: “Sasha accepted the challenge in Florence 16 months ago with great enthusiasm and is convinced he wants to continue it.

“Frankly, I don't know why he hasn't played consistently, but what I can say is that his rapport with the club and city has not changed. He just wants to play and score goals, nothing else.

“Nobody from the club contacted us to discuss a contract termination, nor has the player discussed it with me, so I don't think that is an option right now.

“I won't deny there are offers from Russia and some clubs called to ask for information on Kokorin, but the situation with the war is certainly not helping at the moment.

“In any case, Sasha wants to continue his experience with Fiorentina and to feel useful."
