According to De Telegraaf and reports in Italy, Fiorentina are weighing up a move for Excelsior midfielder Jerdy Schouten.

De Telegraaf is reporting that Fiorentina scouts have visited Rotterdam on several occasions to watch Schouten in action. Italian outlet Sportface added that director Pantaleo Corvino has also watched the 21-year-old.

An official bid has not yet been placed with Excelsior but the interest from Italy is concrete and a January offer is expected.

Schouten came through the ADO Den Haag academy before a spell with Telstar. Last summer, Schouten moved to Excelsior and he has been one of the club’s key players so far this season.
