Lucas Martinez Quarta close to €12m Fiorentina move

Fiorentina are close to securing River Plate centre-back Lucas Martinez Quarta, according to TyC Sports.

Martinez Quarta is considered one of the best defenders in Argentina and has been tipped for a move to Europe.

Leeds, Real Betis and Celta Vigo have shown interest, but the 24-year-old’s future looks to be in Italy.

Celta recently had a €5.5m bid for 50% of the player’s pass turned down by River and did not follow up.

Fiorentina have now made a formal offer of €12m that would also have some bonuses and a sell-on clause.

The proposal is described as ‘irresistable’ and more than likely will lead to Martinez-Quarta’s sale.

Martinez Quarta is a key player for Marcelo Gallardo’s side, but the financial realities have always pointed to a sale.

A two-time Argentine international, Martinez Quarta will soon be showing his talents in one of Europe’s top leagues.
