Fiorentina have joined Inter, Napoli, Sampdoria and Juventus in their links with Southampton outcast Daniel Osvaldo.
The Italy striker did not return in time for pre-season training and this week Saints manager Ronald Koeman confirmed they were looking to sell or loan him out.
So far Inter and Samp have been the most solidly interested in a loan deal, though Juve and Napoli could also be interested.
Now the Gazzetta dello Sport claims Fiorentina are also keeping a close eye on the situation.
It would be a return to the Viola jersey for Osvaldo, who was already their player from 2007 to 2009.
He also already worked with Coach Vincenzo Montella at Roma.
