Iturra and Pantilimon for Viola?

Fiorentina continue to reinforce with reports of interest in Malaga’s Manuel Iturra and Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.

The Tuscans have already signed Marcos Alonso from Bolton and will complete their transfer for Malaga winger Joaquin over the next few days.

They are reportedly looking back to Malaga for midfielder Iturra, a 28-year-old Chilean international who has been at the club since 2012.

He would be available on a free transfer, as he will be out of contract on June 30 2013.

Another item on the shopping list is a goalkeeper, as it seems they are not prepared to make Emiliano Viviano’s loan from Palermo permanent.

Several names have been mentioned, but Manchester City reserve Pantilimon is the most consistently linked with Fiorentina.

The giant Romanian only played in five FA Cup games for City this season and told La Nazione last month “getting into Serie A would be a dream.”
