The Wolves are ready to take the young Ghanaian on loan as talks with his parent club reach advanced stage

Avellino head coach Enzo De Vito wants to sign young Ghanaian left-back Nii Nortey Ashong, who is owned by Fiorentina and currently plays for Spezia.

Goal Ghana can reveal that the coach of the Serie B side met Fiorentina officials on Friday evening and is plotting a loan deal for the Ghanaian defender as a direct replacement for Mathias Abero, who is heading to Bologna.

La Viola are not happy with the lack of playing time for the defender and want to ship him to a side where he will feature regularly.

Palermo, Cesena, Carpi and Ternanan have also expressed interest in signing the versatile defender.

Ashong, 19, made his Coppa Italia debut for Fiorentina on November 24, 2011 in a match against Empoli. On May 30, 2012 Fiorentina paid 300,000 Euros for the other part of the co-ownership by Triestina.
