Fiorentina have beaten AC Milan to the loan signing of Sevilla striker Luis Muriel.Colombia international Muriel became Sevilla’s record signing when he joined from Sampdoria for a reported €22 million in July 2017, but he has failed to live up to expectations.The 27-year-old scored only seven goals in 29 La Liga appearances last season, frustrating fans with a lack of killer instinct in front of goal.

Under new coach Pablo Machin, Muriel played just six times in La Liga this term, with Wissam Ben Yedder and Andre Silva the preferred options in attack.Milan had been touted as favourites to sign Muriel as they look to bolster their attacking options, but Fiorentina ultimately managed to get the deal over the line.Muriel joins the club initially on loan, but they retain the right to purchase him – reportedly for €13m – at the end of the season.Fiorentina will be his fourth Italian club after previous spells at Lecce, Udinese and Sampdoria.
ARLINGTON, TX – NOVEMBER 24: A general view of the field during the game between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on November 24, 2016 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)The Dallas Cowboys officially moved on from offensive coordinator Scott Linehan this weekend, opening up a major hole on staff.According to the latest reports, the Cowboys could fill that vacancy internally by promoting quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore. A former Boise State star, Moore played for Dallas from 2015-17 before assuming QB coaching duties this year.If Moore is indeed promoted, the Cowboys could be looking at another one of their former signal callers to take over his old role. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has stated that Jon Kitna is a potential candidate for a staff position in Dallas.Kitna would take over for Moore as quarterbacks coach.I’m told “don’t laugh, this is a legitimate candidate” in Dallas https://t.co/hgt0onfroB— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) January 20, 2019Kitna played for the Cowboys from 2009-11 and then once again in 2013. Since 2012, he’s been a high school head coach at three different stops, most recently Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona.Kitna compiled a 36-16 record as a high school coach. Back in June, he was hired as the offensive coordinator of the San Diego Fleet of the new Alliance of American Football, which is set to begin play later this year.One has to think that if the Cowboys come calling, it will be tough for Kitna to turn that opportunity down.
