Luca Toni and Alberto Aquilani are in the squad for Sunday night’s match with Sampdoria, though both will need last-minute fitness tests.
The pair were expected to sit out tomorrow’s Serie A game after picking up injuries, especially as Toni has not resumed training since a nasty clash of heads with Torino defender Kamil Glik.
He was diagnosed with head trauma and spent a night in hospital, then sent messages over the last few days suggesting he would be cheering on his teammates from the stands.
However, in a surprise move Toni is included in the squad for Sunday’s fixture, though he will only be allowed to play if the medical staff give the all-clear tomorrow.
Aquilani also appears to have shaken off an injury, although he too needs a fitness test.
As Stevan Jovetic, Adem Ljajic and Michele Camporese are all unavailable, the Viola need all hands on deck.
Fiorentina squad for Sampdoria: Aquilani, Borja Valero, Cassani, Cuadrado, Della Rocca, El Hamdaoui, Fernandez, Hegazi, Llama, Migliaccio, Neto, Olivera, Pasqual, Pizarro, Rodriguez, Romulo, Roncaglia, Savic, Seferovic, Tomovic, Toni, Viviano, Zohore
