Rasmus Elm: Alkmaar midfielder set to end his three year tenure at the club
AZ Alkmaar's Rasmus Elm is poised to reject Fiorentina and join Russian side CSKA Moscow.
The 24-year-old has been chased by the two sides after his impressive displays last season alerted teams to his potential.
However, Elm's agent Patrick Mork confirmed the Serie A side had been unable to reach an agreement with Alkmaar over the Sweden international.
Mork told tuttomercatoweb.com: "Rasmus is now in Munich undergoing a medical and next Sunday he will travel to Moscow to sign a deal with CSKA."
On the speculation linking Elm's with a move to Fiorentina, he added: "Florence is a beautiful city and they are a good team, but the two clubs were not able to reach an agreement."
