Daniele Longo meanwhile, has stated that the Spanish side have not been discouraged by the rejected bid and remain keen. The player is said to be enthusiastic about the idea of joining Barcelona and is waiting to see if anything can work out. Alfredo Pedulla though, reports that Fiorentina are not selling him at any cost.
This comes after ViolaNews had stated that Fiorentina are indeed not looking to sell the midfielder as they have no time to prepare for a replacement or sign one on deadline day.
Amrabat has been previously linked with moves with Liverpool and Tottenham, but Fiorentina have remained strong in their stance.
