Kroldrup has failed to make a success of his time in the Premier League

ROME, Italy -- Fiorentina are on the verge of signing Denmark defender Per Kroldrup from Everton, the Italian Serie A club have confirmed.

The transfer will represent a speedy return to Italy for 26-year-old Kroldrup, who signed a four-year deal worth £5 million ($8.78 million) with the English Premier League club last June.

However, he has failed to settle, picking up an ankle injury and playing only one league match.

Kroldrup began his career at Danish club B93 Copenhagen before signing for Serie A side Udinese in 2001.

Four seasons as a first-team regular at Udinese culminated in an excellent fourth-place finish in 2004-05, earning the club a place in the Champions League for the first time.

Fiorentina currently lie fourth in Serie A with 40 points from 20 matches, 13 points behind leaders Juventus.
