After Borja Valero invited Frank Lampard to join him at Fiorentina, the Viola President also hinted at an offer for the Chelsea hero.
Lampard is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with several Serie A sides, including Lazio and Inter.
“Giuseppe Rossi is only the beginning,” declared President Mario Cognini today at the inauguration of the Fiorentina Soccer School.
“Lampard is a great player and I had asked our former director Pantaleo Corvino for him in the past, but we were always turned down...
“Our transfer market involves certain choices with clear ideas. A player over the age of 30 can be the right link between the youngsters in the squad and the more experienced figures.
“However, I have not asked our directors for Lampard.”
Today Fiorentina midfielder Borja Valero publicly invited Lampard  to join him at the Stadio Franchi.
