Three in Candreva chase

Palermo, Fiorentina and Cesena could be possible destinations for Antonio Candreva this summer.

The creative midfielder is back at Udinese after Parma turned down their option to take a 50 per cent stake in him after his loan stint at the Tardini.

Palermo and Fiorentina have been linked for a while, but Cesena – who have already signed Adrian Mutu this summer – are a new entry in the race for his signature.

Born in February 1987, Candreva started his career at Lodigiani and Ternana before his 2007 switch to Udinese.

He also spent 18 months on loan from the Stadio Friuli outfit with Tuscan side Livorno, as well as spending six months on loan at Juventus.

He's been capped twice by Italy, his first coming in the November 2009 friendly against Holland which ended 0-0.

Candreva is valued at around €8m by Udinese.
