La Viola believe the player has improved during his loan in Spain.
After rumors of a possible transfer to Bologna, Fiorentina have decided to retain the 29 year old Italian international. Fiorentina state that the player has improved after his loan to Levante.
According to Fiorentina the footballer has overcome mental obstacles hindering his ability. The player has a history of being injury prone, which caused him to miss Euro 2012, and also effected his World Cup 2014 chances. He has only featured in the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa on the international stage.
The American born forward joined Fiorentina from Villareal in 2013 for €11.8million.
