Fiorentina in bid for Clasie

Fiorentina have made a bid for Jordy Clasie, but the Feyenoord

midfielder’s agent also claims there is interest from England and

Russia.

Reports in the Dutch media say Italian side Fiorentina have

offered ?5.5million (?4.7m) for Clasie, who still has a further two

seasons to run on his contract at De Kuip.

Clasie is aware of the interest from Fiorentina, but the

21-year-old appears to be in no rush to make a decision regarding

his future.

“I have heard about that,” Clasie told Algemeen Dagblad. “Apart

from that, I don’t know much more than you.

“Regarding a possible departure there are many factors that play

a role. What do they want with you? Is the moment right? What am I

capable of in my career?

“I don’t want to think about all that right now. I am a

Feyenoord player and feel very good.”

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs to have been

linked with Clasie in the past and the Netherlands international’s

agent Wessel Weezenberg is planning talks once next week’s World

Cup qualifier with Romania is out of the way.

Weezenberg told Radio Blu: “Fiorentina like the player and they

have informed Feyenoord about it. We’ll talk with Jordy about

Fiorentina when he comes back from the national team matches.

“Fiorentina are a great club which plays one of the best types

of football from a technical point of view. The presence of a

fantastic player such as David Pizarro could help Clasie to grow

and learn a lot, but we also have to consider that Pizarro would be

the first choice of the coach.

“Fiorentina could be an important opportunity for Clasie, but

there are clubs interested in him in England and in Russia

too.”
