The Serie A side reportedly wanted to loan out the Moroccan striker in January, but the Gunners turned down the move as they were short of cover upfront at the time.
However, after enduring a bright start to his Arsenal career – where he netted 10 goals (in all competitions) in the absence of Robin van Persie – Chamakh has since fallen out-of favour and has only managed to start 4 out of his 14 outings for the Gunners this season, netting just one goal in the process.
As a result of his decline, the 28-year-old is highly expected to depart The Emirates in the summer and Fiorentina look keen on the former Bordeaux forward.
The proposed deal would represent a great piece of business as Arsene Wenger snapped up the Moroccan international on a free transfer back in 2010.
