Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia “would do anything to join Fiorentina,” but it’s reported the club missed out on Alberto Gilardino’s price-tag.
The Viola are set to lose Riccardo Montolivo when his contract expires at the end of the season, so are looking elsewhere for a replacement.
“Biglia would do anything to join Fiorentina,” agent Enzo Montepaone told Walfoot.be.
“Italian football is one of his primary objectives, but above all what Lucas dreams of is wearing the Viola jersey.”
The 25-year-old is currently out injured, but could be snapped up during the transfer window.
Meanwhile, this week Fiorentina sold Gilardino to Genoa for a reported €10m and may well have been short-changed.
“The offer we made over the summer was bigger than the one we eventually signed him for, so I imagine Fiorentina director Pantaleo Corvino is kicking himself,” grinned Genoa director of sport Capozucca on RadioBlu.
