Last summer, Aston Villa signed Nicolò Zaniolo from Galatasaray on a loan deal with an obligation to buy if certain set conditions are fulfilled.

It’s not clear what those conditions are, but it’s likely that the 24-year-old won’t continue at Aston Villa.

Three days ago, journalist Gianluca Di Marzio said the former AS Roma winger is wanted by several Italian clubs, where Fiorentina are in pole position.

The Italy international will miss out on the Euros after suffering an injury in Aston Villa’s 3-3 draw against Liverpool earlier this month. He’s working on his recovery, after going under the knife.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Aston Villa man admitted he’s disappointed to not make it to the national team squad for the Euros.

“The morale is a bit low because I believed in it, I wanted to be there at all costs. We all know how the European Championship [last edition] I missed out on because of the ACL turned out…” he said.

Italy won the that tournament after beating England in the final at Wembley. The Villans attacker has now set his sights on representing his country at the next World Cup.

Gazzetta asked the Aston Villa attacker about his future and also presented Fiorentina as an option.

When responding to that, Zaniolo explained: “I don’t know how much chance there is of me coming back to play in Italy.

“I read about Fiorentina’s interest and I’m pleased, but it’s very early to know where I’ll be playing from July. The truth is that I miss Italy but today everything is possible, in Italy or abroad.”
