Frey, Gila out, Cassano, Lopez in?

Fiorentina have several irons in the fire, including Sebastien Frey and Alberto Gilardino making way for Antonio Cassano and Maxi Lopez.

This will be a revolutionary summer for the Tuscans, who have already sold Adrian Mutu to Cesena, releasing Marco Donadel, Gianluca Comotto, Mario Alberto Santana and most likely Alessio Cerci.

According to Tuttosport, more top stars are set to walk away.

Goalkeeper Frey has an offer on the table from Genoa, where he could move in exchange for cash plus striker Robert Acquafresca.

He would be a replacement for Gilardino, who is of interest overseas for the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Olympique Marseille, Malaga and Villarreal.

This could spark a revolution in attack, allowing Fiorentina to draft in Cassano from Milan and Catania's Maxi Lopez.

Cassano has been repeatedly linked with the Viola due to his unhappiness at the bench role he is currently reserved at San Siro.

In the year leading up to the Euro 2012 tournament, FantAntonio needs regular first team football to convince Italy Coach Cesare Prandelli.

Fiorentina have also reportedly told West Bromwich Albion to either accept their offer for Youssuf Mulumbu or end negotiations.
