The Serie A side are hoping to retain the Egyptian’s services and the director believes the player will agree to remain at the club
Fiorentina have made an “insane” offer for Mohamed Salah, according to general manager Vincenzo Guerini.
The Egypt international joined the Viola in January on loan as part of the deal which saw Juan Cuadrado join Chelsea.
The Serie A side have an option to extend the loan for another year, although the 23-year-old has to agree to it too. However, Fiorentina also have the option to buy him.
Guerini confirmed that the club have made the winger an offer, who scored six goals in 16 league appearances in Italy, and is sure that the player will accept it.
“I can tell the fans that the club made an insane offer to Salah,” he said.
“If any player, not just Salah, turned down a proposal like that, then it’s best he doesn’t stay at Fiorentina. However, I think Salah will accept.
“He made a huge impact with us, so it’s normal that other offers are coming in. He wants to earn more, but Fiorentina made a truly important proposal.
“It really would be a pity to lose him. He was happy with us last season. He was always smiling and was never late. So I am confident he will stay.”
Fiorentina unexpectedly sacked coach Vincenzo Montella after a breakdown between him and the board, and Guerini says things did not end the way he wanted them to.
“I’m sorry that it all ended so badly. It was a wonderful story and it left a bad taste in the mouth of everyone”.
