Fiorentina made Cassani approach

Palermo sporting director Sean Sogliano has confirmed Fiorentina's transfer interest in Mattia Cassani.

The right-back has been linked with the Tuscan giants over the last few days and the reports were indeed accurate.

"Fiorentina did have a go for Cassani," Sogliano told Sky Sport Italia when questioned about the Italian international.

"There is nothing concrete though, but we only want motivated players and those who want to stay at Palermo."

Cassani was linked with Lazio earlier this summer too.

Meanwhile, Sogliano dismissed suggestions that the Viola had also come forward for Antonio Nocerino.

"There are no negotiations going on with them for Nocerino," the director added. "The midfielder will stay with us."
