The agent of West Ham midfielder Edimilson Fernandes says his player could depart permanently for Fiorentina in the summer.
The eight-time Swiss capped midfielder has spent the season in Italy with Serie A outfit Fiorentina, where he has scored twice in 28 appearances.
The 23-year-old signed for the Hammers for £5.5million from Sino in the summer of 2016 but was never a regular fixture in the line-up and was allowed to depart on loan in the summer.
Now, it seems a permanent move may be on the horizon, with a £7million fee clause having been inserted into his deal to trigger a full-time switch.

The boy is very happy.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. Buy NOW!!!
