Tonali to lead Fiorentina triple swoop?

Fiorentina are reportedly in talks to sign Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali, Udinese attacker Rodrigo de Paul and Fluminense striker Pedro.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, Fiorentina are meeting Tonali’s agent this afternoon.

Di Marzio explains new owner Rocco Commisso sees the 19-year-old as ‘symbolic’ to his vision of a young and Italian Viola side.

However, the Sky Sport Italia journalist warns Brescia have ‘no intention’ of selling the playmaker this month or agreeing a future fee with the Tuscans.

Elsewhere, Tuttomercatoweb writes Fiorentina have stepped up negotiations for De Paul as they look to close a deal for the Argentine.

He could be joined at the Artemio Franchi by Pedro, with the website claiming talks took place between Gigliati officials and intermediaries on Wednesday over a loan with obligation to buy.

The 21-year-old has scored 20 goals in 58 games for Fluminense and was previously linked with Milan, Real Madrid and Roma.
