Marcos Alonso: Set for a move to Fiorentina

Alonso is out of contract at the Reebok Stadium and he is set to leave the Championship club on a free transfer.

A number of teams, including Stoke and Hull City, have been linked with a move for the full-back, but Fiorentina are favourites to sign the Spaniard.

Fiorentina have held a long-term interest in Alonso and tried to sign him during the January transfer window.

The Italians are now hopeful that they have agreed a deal as they look to bolster their squad for next season.

Alonso cost Wanderers £2.5m when he signed from Real Madrid in the summer of 2010 and he made 46 appearances for the club during his time at the Reebok.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
