According to press release from ACF Fiorentina, the Hernan Toledo experiment will no longer take place in Florence. The young Argentinian will head back to his home country to play for Club Atletico Lanus, the winner of the 2016 Championship in Argentina. He will not go back to his parent club, Club Deportivo Maldonado. It was a basic transfer to a side where he might get some more playing time.

Toledo did not get a chance to shine in Paulo Sousa‘s lineup. In fact he never played at all. Hernan Toledo is the definition of the International Man of Mystery. For someone that has not played at all for the club, Toledo sure did garner plenty of interest during the January transfer window. According to multiple reports Toledo has a ton of speed on the wing and liked playing in Florence. If a player has potential and wants to actually play for Fiorentina, he may have been with giving a bigger look.

Either way, the 21 year old Toledo is heading back to his home country to get some much needed playing time (hopefully). If he goes back to Argentina and still is just a training player, maybe the talent is not there. Fiorentina took a shot on the young guy and now he will take his trade to another club.
