After a long search, Italy’s Serie A giants Fiorendina have announced they will acquire Arsenal from the Emirates for a reported €60m.
The move, which is expected to close by the end of the year, comes after a period of turmoil following the sale of Nani to AC Milan and subsequent speculation over the future of Nemanja Matic.
Fiorentine chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said: “We have already completed our internal audit of the Arsenal board, which confirmed that the board has decided to take the decision of the board to make this acquisition.”
We hope to make the acquisition final and, after all, it is important for the future development of the club, its fans and its business.
“The deal is subject to the approval of UEFA and the Football Federation International Board of Directors (FFIB), which is chaired by the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
It is expected that Fiorestina’s board will be assisted by former Barcelona boss Joan Laporta, who was appointed last month as a member of the FIFPro board.
Marotta said he wanted the deal to take place quickly, given the uncertainty surrounding the club’s future and the fact that Arsenal are still awaiting the results of the FA’s investigation into the sale.”
We are talking about a great club and a fantastic club. “
We will make the decision as quickly as possible and make it clear to everyone.
