Tuttosport claim that Fiorentina are interested in signing defender Federico Mattiello from Juventus.
The 22-year-old is currently on loan at Serie A strugglers SPAL but his performances are said to have caught the eye of the Viola hierarchy.
He has made 13 League starts for Leonardo Semplici’s side as they battle to avoid an immediate return to the second tier.
According to the Italian daily, Artemio Franchi officials have made an enquiry to Juve as to the possibility of signing Mattiello this month.
The Old Lady are mulling over whether or not to accept the proposal, with any possible deal complicated by the fact the youngster’s loan at SPAL is not due to end until the conclusion of the season.
