Chelsea outcast Marin set for Fiorentina move

The Germany international, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, is again seeking regular first-team football having been deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge
Chelsea winger Marko Marin is undergoing a medical ahead of a proposed move to Fiorentina.

Reports suggest the Germany international will pen an initial loan deal at Stadio Artemio Franchi, having failed to gain regular first-team action at Stamford Bridge.

"Pending official confirmation [of the transfer], Marin is undergoing a medical," read a post on Fiorentina's official Twitter profile.

Marin signed a five-year contract at Chelsea in 2012 but has made under 20 appearances for the Blues since making his initial move from Werder Bremen.

He spent the 2013-14 campaign on loan at Sevilla, winning the Europa League, and it now appears that the 20-year-old will link up with Vincenzo Montella's side.

Marin made 18 appearances in Spain's top flight last season, but missed part of the campaign with a thigh complaint.
