In another deal that we’ve all seen coming for months, Fiorentina announced that Valentin Eysseric has been loaned to Hellas Verona for the remainder of the season. We’re not sure if there’s a clause inserted for the Mastini to make the deal permanent, but early reports seem to think that it’s a dry loan.
The 27-year-old French attacker should slide right into Ivan Jurić’s rotation in Verona, competing with Valerio Verre and Matteo Pessina for a starting role in support of the lone striker in the mister’s 3-4-2-1. His clever passing should open things up a bit for a side that’s far more functional than magical, although his lack of mobility could see him lose out to quicker options as well.
It’s the second January exit in a row for the former France U21 international after his stint at Nantes last year saw the Ligue 1 outfit decline his option. We hope that he enjoys life with Hellas, as it was reported that he wanted a return to his home country that didn’t materialize. There’s also a chance that he’s a covert part of the deal for Sofyan Amrabat. With a contract that runs until 2022, it’d be nice for Eysseric to settle in somewhere, as he’d likely leave on loan again for the next couple of years otherwise. Either way, bonne chance, Valentin.
