Real Madrid | Transfer Market Want to sign him on loan
Alvaro Odriozola has played just 57 minutes of football at Real Madrid this season and, as such, a departure is on the cards, with Serie A club Fiorentina interested in his services.
The Basque right-back was one of two players left out of the matchday squad for the Supercopa de Espana semi-final defeat to Athletic Club on Thursday night, and the only match he has played in this season came against Real Valladolid back in September.
Now, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Fiorentina have Odriozola as one of the players on their shortlist and could look to complete a loan move for the Real Madrid defender.
It was this time last year that the 25-year-old departed Los Blancos on loan, heading to Bayern Munich for the final six months of the season. He did not play much in Germany, but he returned with three trophies: the Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal.
Odriozola found himself clearly behind Dani Carvajal in the pecking order upon his return to Real Madrid, while Zinedine Zidane has preferred to play either Lucas Vazquez or Nacho Fernandez in this role when Carvajal is unavailable.
Athletic are another of the clubs that have been linked with Odriozola, but they seem to have cover in this position with Ander Capa and Oscar de Marcos, so a move to Fiorentina could suit all parties.
