Fiorentina are battling Milan and Everton for the signature of Thiago Silva, who is a free agent from PSG, claims Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Sky Sport Italia transfer expert broke the news this evening that the Viola had approached Thiago Silva to offer him personal terms.
Like Franck Ribery last summer, Thiago Silva is a free agent and will turn 36 in September.
It was believed that Everton were leading the race, especially as it would mean a reunion with his old Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti.
In turn, a comeback to San Siro would be on the cards for the Brazilian, who wore the Rossoneri jersey from 2009 to 2012.
Now Fiorentina have emerged as genuine contenders for veteran centre-back Thiago Silva.
According to Di Marzio’s report, the player is more than open to the idea of coming to the Stadio Franchi.
