Bidding war for Toni

Fiorentina have told Luca Toni he is free to go, so Bologna, Hellas Verona and Sassuolo came forward with offers.

The veteran striker will be out of contract with the Viola next month and President Andrea Della Valle revealed he “advised Luca to retire and become a director.”

Scoring eight goals in 27 Serie A games this season, Toni believes he can still play on and contribute to a smaller team.

Today is his 36th birthday and the former European Golden Boot winner is wanted by Bologna along with newly promoted Verona and Sassuolo.

Bologna and Sassuolo would represent a homecoming, as he is from the Emilia-Romagna area, specifically in the province of Modena – where Sassuolo play their home games.
