Valon Behrami has recommended that Fiorentina go to war to keep their captain Riccardo Montolivo.
The Italy international midfielder is considering his future at the end of the season.
Juventus and Inter are said to be among the clubs interested in Montolivo.
"Riccardo is a point of reference both on and off the pitch for me and the entire team," Behrami said.
"If I were Fiorentina I would go to war to keep him.
"I play along side Montolivo and I can underline how important he is to the team."
