Fiorentina are ready to hijack Napoli’s move for available Lazio defender Modibo Diakite, writes La Nazione.
The stopper’s agent admitted yesterday that he would now listen to offers from other clubs  given the Azzurri’s inability to conclude the transfer.
Although the defender has agreed terms with the Stadio San Paolo outfit, Napoli have yet to close the deal.
Now the report suggests that the Viola are ready to take advantage of the hesitation being shown by the Naples side.
Diakite is available on a Bosman free transfer after turning down a renewal at the Stadio Olimpico. He has played in just one game this term, a Coppa Italia tie.
