January 11, (THEWILL) – Leicester City have reportedly made Fiorentina a £30 million offer for versatile forward, Nicolas Gonzalez.
The Foxes are looking for additions to help turn around what has been a very dreadful 2022/2023 campaign thus far. Discussions are ongoing with Fiorentina about possibly bringing Gonzalez to the King Power Stadium for the rest of the season.
Leicester are hoping that La Viola will accept their offer to finalise a trade since they think the Argentina international is interested in playing at the East Midlands. Even though there are other Premier League teams keeping an eye on Gonzalez, Fiorentina is enticed by Leicester’s offer. Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle have expressed interest in the 24-year-old in recent months, but neither team has yet made a formal bid.
Gonzalez, who mostly plays on the right wing for Fiorentina this season, has five goals in 11 appearances. He moved to Stuttgart in 2021 and joined the Italian team.
Gonzalez was left off Argentina’s final 26-man roster for their successful 2022 World Cup run after missing part of this season due to injury.
