American-Italian Giuseppe Rossi will join Celta Vigo on loan from Italian side Fiorentina

Vigo, Spain – Celta Vigo and Fiorentina have reached an agreement for the transfer of Giuseppe Rossi, Fiorentina Coach Paulo Sousa confirms

“The director (of sport Pantaleo) Corvino told me that Jaime Baez has a deal with Spezia and Rossi with Celta Vigo, but there is no news on the other players,” said Sousa in today’s Press conference.

Rossi returned to Fiorentina at the beginning of the summer, but Paulo Sousa’s choices seem to have remained unaltered. The Portuguese tactician played debutant Federico Chiesa in place of the experienced Italian striker in Fiorentina’s first 2016-17 Serie A game of the season against Juventus.

The 29-year-old would become the fifth signing of Celta for the season just starting. Other names like Serbian Aleksandar Katai and Barcelona Munir El Haddadi have also been mentioned to join Celta.

The former Man United starlet has also played for Villareal and Levante in Spain. Since his knee injury in 2012, the striker has not been able to find his rhythm and keep a stable position with any club he has been on.
