If Fiorentina can’t tempt Vincenzo Montella away from Catania soon, they could turn their attentions to Gianfranco Zola.
The Viola have pin-pointed Montella as their ideal new Coach after going through Sinisa Mihajlovic, Delio Rossi and caretaker manager Vincenzo Guerini this season.
However, Catania President Antonino Pulvirenti has refused to listen to the tactician’s desire to move on, at first when Roma called and now Fiorentina.
According to La Repubblica, the alternative at the Stadio Franchi would be former West Ham United boss Zola.
Fiorentina are not his only option, as Zola has also been linked with Catania and Pescara.
