It was earlier reported by various reliable sources that the midfielder rejected a move to Bundesliga side, Eintracht Frankfurt after a permanent deal was proposed to him. According to reports, the Uruguayan international prefers a move back to Italy, and Fiorentina was said to have proposed a loan move with an option to buy.
Although no official announcement have been made by either Fiorentina or Arsenal, but today, the reliable AFCBELL posted a leaked picture of the midfielder in a Fiorentina shirt.
According to Chris Wheatley, the 25-year-old wanted to stay at Arsenal this season, but he was told that he is not in Mikel Arteta's plans.
It is sad to see the defensive midfielder go, especially after having a decent first season at Arsenal. Many saw him as the new Gilberto Silva, but the crucial injury he sustained scuppered his progress at the club. We wish him all the best in his new adventure.
