Fiorentina Outcast Buying Time to Find a Team He Likes

Luka Jovic is on his way out after Fiorentina added Luca Beltran and M’Bala Nzola, but his departure will go down to the final minutes or perhaps into overtime, considering the different deadline days in some countries.

According to La Nazione (via OneFootball), Olympiakos touched base with his entourage. The Serb didn’t shut the door but didn’t say yes either. He’s waiting for other destinations. Given his past, the prospect of moving to the Greek league doesn’t entice him too much. It remains to be seen if something better comes around. Cagliari put forth an inquiry, but they will sign Andrea Petagna from Monza.

His agent Fali Ramadami offered him to multiple clubs, including Milan, without finding a taker. Per La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Tuttomercatoweb), Jovic and his camp are hoping the Rossoneri don’t sign Mehdi Taremi, as he might be their fallback plan since it won’t be hard to agree with Fiorentina.

The mercurial 25-year-old recorded 12 goals and 5 assists in 50 matches with the Viola last season, staying healthy for an entire campaign for the first time in years.

Our Take on Fiorentina and Jovic

He was okay, but they made their choices. The fact that they got him gratis from Real Madrid makes it easier to wait for the right offer, as they don’t have major financial needs concerning his departure.
