Fiorentina captain Riccardo Montolivo is reportedly considering an offer from Chelsea, while Liverpool seek teammate Juan Manuel Vargas.
Italy international midfielder Montolivo is “unlikely” to stay in Florence past this summer after refusing to sign a contract extension.
He has been heavily linked with Inter, Juventus and Roma, but Itasportpress claims Chelsea are now making a bid for his services.
In an interview this week, Montolivo refused to rule out an overseas experience.
There is Premier League interest for another Fiorentina star, as Liverpool are following Peruvian winger Vargas.
He has suffered from numerous injuries this season, but has also attracted interest from Manchester City.
