Fiorentina ‘won’t give up on De Rossi’

Fiorentina are reportedly not giving up on Daniele De Rossi, despite his apparent decision to retire.

Sky Sport Italia claimed yesterday that De Rossi had opted to call time on his career following his release from Roma.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport is countering that Fiorentina are standing by their offer from two weeks ago.

The newspaper explains the Viola are courting the midfielder ‘daily’ but that he has asked for time to make a final decision on his career.

The Tuscans are in need of new faces in the middle of the park, with both Edimilson Fernandes and Gerson having already left and Jordan Veretout on his way out.
