Viola to offer Verratti €3m per season

Fiorentina could offer Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti a sensational €3m per season plus bonuses to entice him to Tuscany.

The Viola see the Italy international as the final piece in the puzzle for next season as they look to challenge Inter, Milan, Napoli, Juventus, Roma and Lazio for a Champions League place.

The arrival of Mario Gomez from Bayern Munich has already sent out a signal to the rest of the division, but Mediaset journalist Claudio Raimoni believes that the former Pescara man is next on their wishlist.

The Artemio Franchi team will offer the youngster €3m-a-year plus performance-related bonuses in a hope to see him return to the peninsula.

Verratti has been a sensation since his move to PSG last term, and has received admiring glances from the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
