Fiorentina are said to be interested in Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama.
The Corriere dello Sport claims the 23-year-old Kenyan is a January transfer window target.
He can ask about life in Serie A because his step-brother is Parma midfielder McDonald Mariga.
The Saints only signed Wanyama from Celtic in July 2013 and he has a contract that runs to June 2017.
There is one very big problem with this potential move, as Wanyama has been ruled out for five weeks by a hamstring injury he sustained on Wednesday.
The Viola could be considering this for the future, as Alberto Aquilani's contract is due to expire.
