Siena have overtaken Atalanta in the race to sign Andrea Masiello following Bari's relegation from Serie A.
It seemed as if the Bergamo outfit had got their man, but the Tuscan side have apparently hijacked the switch.
According to reports, Siena will sign the 25-year-old in a co-ownership deal after handing over €2.5m to Bari.
Parma were also interested in the former Juventus player who can be used as a right-back or a centre-back.
