Kalinic wants to join Fiorentina - agent

The attacker is under contract to Dnipro until 2019 but, according to his representative, has already made his decision to join the Viola

Dnipro striker Nikola Kalinic's agent has made it clear that the attacker has set his sights on a move to Fiorentina.

The Serie A side are on the hunt for a new striker after Mario Gomez was loaned to Besiktas for the 2015-16 season and Kalinic has emerged as their primary target.

The 27-year-old attacker has a contract with Dnipro until 2019, but is nonetheless hopeful that his Ukrainian employers will allow him to move on.

"Nikola wants to come to Florence," Kalinic's agent, Tomislav Erceg, told Firenzeviola.

"He's honoured by Fiorentina's interest, and he'd like to play in Serie A next year. It's up to the clubs to find a decisive agreement.

"Our decision has already been made."

Kalinic, who opened the scoring in Dnipro's 3-2 loss to Sevilla in 2014-15 Europa League final, has netted 37 times in 86 league appearances since moving to Dnipropetrovsk from Blackburn Rovers in 2011.
