Fiorentina seek attacking options

Fiorentina are seeking a change of striking options under new coach Beppe Iachini, with Diego Farias, Matteo Politano and Domenico Berardi all linked.

The Viola sacked Vincenzo Montella after a poor run of results over the last two months and have brought in former Sassuolo and Empoli boss Iachini to steady the ship.

Il Corriere dello Sport report that Iachini wants new attacking options, as Fiorentina struggled to convert chances under Montella.

The Rome daily suggests that Iachini would like one of Farias, Politano or Berardi.

Iachini worked with Farias at Empoli last season, and the striker hasn’t been a regular for Lecce this term.

Politano meanwhile isn’t considered to be in Inter coach Antonio Conte’s plans. The winger has only started two games this season and is seeking a move in order to gain more playing time.

Berardi was linked in the summer with a move to Florence, and a deal could be pushed through this time around, with the Sassuolo winger struggling for form this season.

Atalanta meanwhile are reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport to be interested in signing Leicester loanee Rachid Ghezzal, currently playing at Fiorentina.

Ghezzal signed on loan last summer, but hasn’t made an impact in Florence, and has only started twice for the Viola.

However, the Milan daily reports that La Dea are yet to make a decision as to whether they will approach Leicester about the player.
