Fiorentina are open to a loan deal for Callejon, with his contract set to expire next year in 2022.

A few weeks ago, Lazio approached the 34-year-old Callejon, appreciating his tactical flexibility and knowledge of new coach Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 system.

Therefore, the Spaniard could represent a low-cost option for the Biancocelesti this summer, although the club still need to resolve their liquidity ratio issue before they can secure the player.

Callejon made 20 Serie A appearances last season, for a total of 654 minutes. In that time, he provided one assist, making only six starts in the league all campaign.
