Viola want Italian five?

Fiorentina are interested in five Italian signings including PSG’s Salvatore Sirigu and Southampton’s Graziano Pelle, say reports.

La Viola currently occupy fifth place in Serie A and look very likely to be gearing up for another Europa League campaign next season.

Corriere Fiorentino has reported today that the club’s hierarchy are looking to ‘Italianise’ the squad this summer and have five names on their list.

PSG goalkeeper Sirigu, who was also linked with Juventus today, is believed to be wanted by the Artemio Franchi club after losing his place this season to Kevin Trapp.

Italy international Pelle of Southampton is also a target as he approaches the final year of his contract, but Lazio are also believed to be in the running.

Other targets include Federico Viviani of relegated Verona, Udinese’s Valerio Verre and Sassuolo midfielder Simone Missiroli.
