Fiorentina ponder Sorrentino loan

Fiorentina will ask Palermo for the loan of goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino, reports the Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Serie B club have admitted that they will listen to offers for Sorrentino, so long as they arrive within the next week.

The shot-stopper only joined the Stadio Barbera outfit in January from Chievo Verona, but Palermo have a surplus of goalkeepers.

The Sicilian club also have Italian international Emiliano Viviano in their ranks after he spent last season on loan at Fiorentina. The Viola opted against signing him outright.

Meanwhile, Tuttosport are suggesting that the Tuscan giants have shown an interest in Bordeaux custodian Cedric Carrasso.

Fiorentina yesterday underlined that their proposed bid for Brazil and QPR ace Julio Cesar was over. It is believed that his wage demands were considered as excessive.
