Fiorentina and Napoli are after Barcelona's Marc Bartra, but will have to beat four Premier League clubs to sign the player.
The 25-year-old defender's contract expires next year, and the scant playing time that he's been given with the Blaugrana suggest he will be moving.
According to Superdeporte, Napoli and Fiorentina are both considering a swoop for the player. However, while Barcelona may not object to the operation, they will have to beat some very substantial competition.
Valencia recently showed some interest in the player, while numerous teams in the Premier League will take part in the race. Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are all believed to be after Bartra.
