The Egyptian is believed to have reneged on an additional year's loan agreement with Fiorentina.
Chelsea's Mohamed Salah, who enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Fiorentina last season, could be facing legal action after he refused to spend another year on loan at the Italian club, according to the Daily Mail.
Fiorentina had paid a fee to guarantee Salah’s loan for a second season but the player reportedly had the power of veto and decided to exercise it.
The 23-year old has been linked to a number of clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur, by the likes of the London Evening Standard, but his agent has revealed that he will still be plying his trade in Italy next season, albeit not in Florence.
"We have decided not to stay in Fiorentina. Salah will shortly move on to another Italian club,” said Salah’s agent Ramy Abbas to Firenzeviola.it.
Salah managed nine goals and four assists in his 29 appearances at Fiorentina after joining in January and his form hasn’t gone unnoticed across Europe. A host of clubs are believed to be interested in his signature but which Italian giant comes in for him remains to be seen.
Jose Mourinho is still unconvinced by the pacey winger and he no longer appears to have a future at Stamford Bridge.
A return to the Premier League is now also off the table, at least for the time being, with the Chelsea man set to remain in the league he so excelled in last season.
