Leicester flop Ghezzal set to join Fiorentina permanently

Leicester City flop Rachid Ghezzal is set to sign for Fiorentina on a permanent deal.

The Algerian midfielder enjoyed his loan spell in Serie A, and would like to stay.

The Daily Mail says Fiorentina want to negotiate the buying price for Ghezzal, even though there is a £9 million buy option within the loan agreement.

They hope to get a lower price on the 28-year-old, and Leicester would be happy to add some money to their own transfer budget.

Ghezzal made 21 appearances and managed one goal for Fiorentina, and was particularly impressive after the restart.

Islam Slimani, Daniel Amartey and Filip Benkovic are other Leicester players likely to leave this summer.
