All hail Emre Mor... Bernardeschi who?

Reports emerging are hinting that Corvino may be looking to release some of the funds amassed by the systematical dismantling of the squad this summer by tabling a €12 million bid for the Borussia Dortmund player.

With the flanks still looking somewhat weak aka non existent, Fiorentina are hoping to strike a deal for one of Europes hottest prospects. Mor, predominantly a winger, is a small Turk, who's move to Dortmund last summer from Danish side FC Nordsjælland wasn't as successful as initially hoped. Dortmund's vacuuming up of talent over the past year has seen a lot of youngsters move to the North Rhineland, with some moves being better than others. However, Mor, an undeniably talented player who has drawn interest from Liverpool recently, falls into the latter category. With his playing time limited by the swathes of frankly incredible options Dortmund have along their frontline, Fiorentina have offered a lifeline for the 20 year old.

The young Turk's strengths lie in his ball control and his overall speed. He's small, fast, and strikes an resemblance to Federico Chiesa, who would no doubt operate on Mor's opposite flank. Eccentricity and inventiveness is something definitely lacking in Florence at the moment, and a move for Mor could see Pioli's 5 man midfield take shape.

And regarding the customary highlights video, you know the drill guys.

Fiorentina will be keen to ask for MOR than their previous German import, Jakub Błaszczykowski game them. Yeah, that was bad, I know.

Either way, given the traumatic summer we have all had so far, this is the kind of move the club needs to be making. Young, exciting, talented and ready to fetch a high profit when the board gets a sniff...
