Prade set for Fiorentina

Reports are gathering pace that Daniele Prade will become the new sporting director of Serie A side Fiorentina.

The Viola are looking for a transfer official after Pantaleo Corvino left the outfit following some problematic campaigns in Tuscany.

Former Inter director Gabriele Oriali held talks to succeed Corvino, but rejected the opportunity after being unconvinced by the project.

Prade has experience with Serie A side Roma, but he left the capital club in May 2011 after the new owners brought in Walter Sabatini.

If Prade is confirmed in the role, one of his first jobs will be to help appoint a new Coach at the Stadio Franchi.
