Fiorentina keen to take Chelsea's Atsu on loan
The Serie A side are ready to swoop for the Ghana international as a replacement for Juan Cuadrado
Christian Atsu is being tipped for another stint away from Chelsea next term with Fiorentina keen on a loan deal for the rising star, Goal Ghana can reveal.
The 22-year-old is yet to kick a ball for the Blues after being sent to Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem for the duration of the current campaign soon after joining the club from Porto for £3.5 million.
Atsu is seen as one for the future by the Stamford Bridge outfit and will have no shortage of takers if he is not part of Jose Mourinho's plans for next term.
Everton have previously been linked with the Ghana international and may renew their interest, but the Serie A side are reportedly the front-runners for his services.
La Viola have identified Atsu as a possible option to replace Juan Cuadrado, who is being tipped for a move away from Italy this summer in the face of strong interest from Arsenal and Bayern Munich.
