The Danish defender only arrived at Goodison Park in the summer from Udinese, but injuries hampered his progress at Goodison Park.
He returned to action recently and voiced his desire to start making up for lost time on Merseyside.
However, despite figuring as a substitute in Wednesday's FA Cup win over Millwall, Kroldrup has turned his back on The Toffees in favour of a return to Serie A.
Kroldrup claims he did not have a second thought once the Viola made their interest known.
"When the opportunity come up, it was just to take it," Kroldrup, who has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal, told Onside.dk.
"I would like to return to Italy and now there is no way back.
"I don't really feel I have had the chance to prove my worth."
Everton say the deal has not yet been concluded, but have confirmed they are mulling over an offer from the Italian outfit.
