Soccer: Giuseppe Rossi close to joining Fiorentina

Florence, January 4 - Injured Italy forward Giuseppe Rossi is close to joining Fiorentina from Spanish side Villarreal. The inventive 25-year-old was a regular Azzurri starter before suffering a nasty knee-ligament injury playing for Villarreal against Real Madrid in October 2011. He has not played since as he also suffered another injury to the same knee last year before he was able to return. He is expected to resume action in March. The Fiorentina side are said to have agreed to pay nine million euros for Rossi plus bonuses and the two clubs are now reportedly thrashing out the final details of the deal.
