All sorts of activity surrounding Juan Cuadrado and André Schürrle in the last 24 hours, but let's not forget about young Mohamed Salah, who's been rumored to be off to Italy with either Roma, Inter, and now, apparently, Fiorentina.  In fact, if truth be told, I'm still holding out hope that it's only Salah who's leaving to make room for Cuadrado.

Di Marzio has been our go-to trusted source for most rumors Italian, so let's go with his latest once again.

Chelsea have just reached an agreement for the transfer of purple Mohamed Salah [...] on the basis of a free loan until June 2015, extendable for another year with payment of one million euro from the club's president Della Valle. Now, it remains to find the agreement between the purple and Salah, but there is confidence.

Untangling the Google Translate oddities, we get a free loan to Fiorentina until the end of the season (i.e. Chelsea will continue to pay Salah's wages), at which point then La Viola would have the option to extend it for another 12 months for a loan fee of €1m.

Not a terrible deal for a 22-year-old player who's hardly made any impact in his 12 months at Stamford Bridge.
