Marco Cassetti could wrap up a deal with Fiorentina in the coming days after he was released by Roma.
New Fiorentina Coach Vincenzo Montella knows Cassetti well from his time as caretaker boss of Roma and now wants to bring him to Florence.
Zdenek Zeman, who has just taken over as Giallorosso boss, allowed Cassetti to leave the club as a free agent after deciding not to offer him a renewed deal.
The 35-year-old right-back was used sparingly by previous boss Luis Enrique in the capital given that he appeared in just seven League games during 2011-12.
