I've just read it too. Doesn't that contract start in summer? If so, jimbo has still chances to win the bet.

He doesn't leave until his loan with us finishes, though I thought something like this might be the reason he's not been playing much, and wasn't in the squad at the weekend.

Don't think he'll get the 10 goals I need for the 20 quid, hopefully he can put a few more away before he goes though.

Davies probably won't use him much now though, he has contracted players to think about.

Fiorentina sign Lupoli Monday 26 February, 2007

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arsenal-owned forward Arturo Lupoli has agreed to a five-year contract with Fiorentina, the club’s website has confirmed.

The 19-year-old, who is currently on loan with Derby County, had been paired with a move at the end of the season when his deal with Arsenal was set to expire and had made no secret of the fact that he would favour a return to Italy.

Numerous clubs including Napoli, Milan, Inter and Torino were interested in the Under-21 international’s services, but Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino had recently revealed that he was close to reaching an agreement with the youngster.

Lupoli, who scored on his Azzurrini debut against Luxembourg in December, made his first international appearance with the Under-16 team and debuted in the FA Cup at the age of 16, scoring a brace for the Gunners.

No surprise, think we all knew he'd be going elsewhere next season, and it's seemed very likely for a while it would be back to Italy.

Lupoli refused Gunners deal Tuesday 27 February, 2007

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Fiorentina recruit Arturo Lupoli has revealed that he snubbed a contract extension offer from Arsenal.

The 19-year-old, who is currently on loan with Derby County, agreed to a five-year contract with the Tuscan side on Monday and will return to Italy on a free transfer in July.

“Arsenal offered me an important contract extension, but I didn’t even think about it,” said Lupoli to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Inter, Milan, Udinese, Napoli and Torino had shown an interest in me, as well as Valencia,” continued the Under-21 international.

“In the end, however, I chose Fiorentina. Florence is a beautiful city and this is an ambitious club that has decided to invest in young players.”

Lupoli landed in England when he was 16, having grown up in Parma’s youth system, but admits that the decision to return to the peninsula goes back to some months ago.

“Last summer I went with Arsenal to Austria and boss Arsene Wenger told me that I needed to play elsewhere on loan in order to have more playing time,” he added.

“I have adapted well to England, but this was a life choice for me and I couldn’t say no to Fiorentina.

“In any case, these have been three important years for me in England. I have learned so much from champions like Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.”

Striker Arturo Lupoli wants to sign off in style by firing Derby County back to the Premiership.

"I'm not a Fiorentina player yet and the main thing for me is to help get Derby promoted," said the 19-year-old, who will return to Italy after his season-long loan at Pride Park.

Lupoli, a free agent in the summer, turned down the offer of a contract extension from Arsenal and has pledged his future to Fiorentina.

He has agreed a five-year deal with the Serie A club and said a host of other clubs were interested in him, including Internazionale, AC Milan, Napoli and Valencia.

First, Lupoli has some unfinished business with the Rams before heading home.

His lack of games in recent weeks has left him disappointed but he remains fully focused on the Championship run-in.

"We have a big, big chance and I think we will be promoted but we have to be patient and get back on track," said Lupoli, who has been on the substitutes' bench as the Rams have failed to win in three league games.

He has not started a league match since January 13.

"I just want to play, I always want to play, and so it has been disappointing not to be in the team," said Lupoli.

"I thought I did quite well between September and January but the manager makes the decisions on who plays. I hope to have more chances to show what I can do."

Lupoli has no regrets about his time in England having joined Arsenal from Parma in July 2004.

"I would like to thank Arsenal for everything they have done for me," he said.

"To be training with the likes of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg was amazing for me and I learned so much.

"I have also learned some good stuff at Derby. The Championship is a very tough league and you also have to learn to chase, tackle and help your team.

"The manager, Billy Davies, is very good with the young players and is always trying to get the best out of Ryan Smith, Giles Barnes and myself."

Davies says Lupoli still has a big part to play this season.

Fiorentina have recovered from the 15-point punishment for their part in a match-fixing scandal to sit seventh in Serie A with Luca Toni and Adrian Mutu forming a successful strike partnership.

"They are a great partnership and hopefully I can add to that," said Lupoli, who is in Italy's Under-21 squad and looking forward to the European Championships this summer.

Asked why he opted for Fiorentina, he added: "They are an ambitious club and the prospects for the future are good.

"They made it clear that they really wanted me."

Lupoli predicts Viola future Monday 5 March, 2007

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Fiorentina striker Arturo Lupoli is hopeful that he could be playing in the Champions League next term.

The Arsenal-owned forward, currently on loan at Derby, will join the Tuscan outfit on a free transfer in the summer and he’s optimistic that his future teammates can end the present campaign in the top four.

“I think Fiorentina have all that is needed to qualify for the Champions League,” admitted the former Parma youngster. “That was evident in Sunday’s 5-1 win over Torino.

“Fiorentina’s home record is impressive and they have also offered some good performances on the road.

“The next few games will be key for the club now and I think we can aim for even higher objectives next season.”

Fiorentina have certainly battled well this term when you consider their 15-point penalty and boss Cesare Prandelli is understandably keen to sign a new deal.

“Prandelli is very important for me,” added the Italian Under-21 ace. “I really do hope that he stays.

“I know him and he knows me. The fact that he wanted me at Fiorentina says it all. I think I would encounter a few more problems without him in Florence…”
