The January transfer window is about to open while there will be a break in Serie A for sporting directors and agent to close deals. A player that could soon pack his things is Luis Muriel, Sevilla's striker. The Colombian striker, after his experience at Sampdoria, could in fact return to Italy.
Fiorentina and Milan are highly interested. The Viola board hopes the player keeps his word, as he said he'd give priority to their team. His relationship with Pantaleo Corvino could be decisive, as he used to be his sporting director when he was a Lecce player. On the other hand, the Rossoneri have began talks with Sevilla, finding an agreement on a loan with option to buy, a formula the Spanish side have already agreed to for numerous deals.
Muriel will obviously have the final word. There will be a meeting with his agent Lucci later today, so that the player's intentions are clear: if he'd want to respect his promise to Fiorentina or take the Milan challenge, with Gattuso that could play him as a winger.
For the moment, Muriel's stats aren't great as he's only played 800 minutes all competitions included, with 4 goals and 4 assists.
