Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini reportedly wants a new striker at the Artemio Franchi, with Krzysztof Piatek and Andrea Belotti mentioned as the two targets.
Il Corriere dello Sport claims the Viola are not giving up on Torino forward Belotti, who they have admired for a long time.
But Torino could ask for over €50m for Belotti and therefore Fiorentina must have a back-up plan.
Iachini, who was confirmed to continue at the helm for 2020-21 last month, has reportedly identified Piatek as the solution.
The Poland international, who moved from Milan to Hertha Berlin in January, could be a cheaper solution for the Viola.
