Fiorentina look at Diego

Juventus flop Diego is being linked with a return to Serie A after Fiorentina were paired with his services.

The Brazilian only joined Wolfsburg on a four-year deal last summer, but he may be sold by the Bundesliga outfit.

The attacking midfielder had a problematic 2010-11 campaign in Germany and is considering his options.

Diego, 26, signed for Juventus in 2009 after the Old Lady paid Werder Bremen €24.5m for his signature.

After Juve finished the campaign in a lowly seventh place, Diego was one of numerous players shipped out by new director general Beppe Marotta last August.

Diego was also linked with Lazio earlier this summer, but it seems as if Fiorentina could be a possible destination.

The Viola, who recently allowed Adrian Mutu to join Cesena, are apparently ready to offer €10m for his services.

Wages could be a problem though as the South American was on €3.5m a season in Turin, whilst Viola top earners Sebastien Frey and Alberto Gilardino net €2m a campaign.
