Fiorentina fight Torino for Leicester City midfielder Praet

Fiorentina are revamping their midfield, as after agreeing terms with Juventus for Rolando Mandragora, they have now made an offer for Leicester City’s Dennis Praet, who also just completed a Torino loan.

Mandragora has decided he will snub Torino after his loan period there and accept the move to the Stadio Artemio Franchi for circa €10m including bonuses.

They are already on to the next target, as Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims they have made a proposal worth €7m to Leicester City for Praet.

Curiously, he too spent this season on loan at Torino and again the Granata tried and failed to negotiate a permanent stay.

The 28-year-old Belgium international was on loan at a cost of €1m and scored two goals with two assists in 23 Serie A appearances for Toro.

It’s reported he could join Fiorentina instead for €7m, or on loan with an obligation to buy at the end of the season.

Praet spent much of his career in Italy, as he was at Sampdoria from 2016 until the €19m move to Leicester in 2019.

  1. For 3 years Fiorentina tried to bring Praet and always failed because he didn’t want to join.. Does Prade not have a list of other potential players besides the players he brought to Italy in the past..?
