Leicester City winger Rachid Ghezzal desires to leave the Foxes to go back to Italian Serie A side Fiorentina, the player’s agent has confessed.

The 28-year-old invested last season on loan in Italy with Fiorentina, but is back at the King Power Stadium with no agreement between the Italians and Leicester over him remaining in Serie A.

Ghezzal desires to play his football at Fiorentina moving forward, his representative has insisted, however there is no offer in place and the circumstance is securely on hold.

Agent Theofilos Karasavvidis told Italian outlet Fiorentina.it: “We talked to Fiorentina. We have actually not discovered an arrangement and for now the scenario is on standby.

” Our intention is to return to Fiorentina, however it does not just depend upon the player.

” It also depends on the two groups and in any case, we are discussing it.”

Ghezzal made 19 looks in Serie An over the course of last term for La Viola, finding the back of the net when, against Lecce.

Leicester got Ghezzal from Ligue 1 side Monaco in the summer of 2018 and he put pen to paper to a four-year contract with the Premier League side.

Ghezzal came through the youth ranks at French giants Lyon.
