According to Sportitalia, Fiorentina have targeted Sassuolo coach Roberto De Zerbi and former Roma director Gianluca Petrachi for next season.
The Viola already fired Beppe Iachini and brought in Cesare Prandelli, but the veteran is not expected to remain beyond May.
Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà maintains President Rocco Commisso is looking at a complete revamp of the club structure for 2021-22.
This would include an exit for director of sport Daniele Pradè, replaced by former Roma and Torino director Petrachi.
His choice for coach would be De Zerbi, who has impressed in recent years with his style of football at Sassuolo.
In turn, Sassuolo are keeping a close eye on Vincenzo Italiano, who has a not dissimilar approach to the sport with newly-promoted Spezia.
