Fiorentina had already made an offer for Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali over the summer, but director Daniele Pradè assures they “won’t try again in January.”
The two clubs meet on Monday at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.
“We’ve had a difficult start to the season, but the last three victories have really helped boost morale,” Pradè told TGR Toscana.
“Brescia are a very tough opponent, because they have an excellent Coach like Eugenio Corini, a star striker like Mario Balotelli and strong midfielder in Tonali.
“It will be really difficult for us to win at the Stadio Rigamonti.”
Tonali made his senior Italy debut this week and Fiorentina director of sport Pradè was asked if they would revive their approach for the 19-year-old in January.
“No, we won’t try again in January. We’ll be concentrating on sales rather than purchases. Besides that, why would Brescia want to sell Tonali mid-season?”
He has also been heavily linked with the likes of Juventus, Inter, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain.
