Fiorentina are looking abroad for young talent with bids for Corinthians starlet Paulinho and Betis Sevilla's Oscar Herrera.
Director of sport Pantaleo Corvino is well known as one of the best scouts of international young players in football.
With a limited budget, he is thought to be trawling the world for more unknown stars of the future.
The Corriere dello Sport suggests a bid has already been made for 22-year-old Corinthians midfielder Paulinho and the club is waiting for a response.
At the same time, a deal is reportedly struck for Betis Sevilla youth product Herrera, who is still only 16 years old.
The midfielder is one of the brightest up and coming figures in Spain.
