Chamakh on Viola radar

Fiorentina are reportedly thinking about making a loan bid for Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh.

The Viola, now bossed by Delio Rossi, are in the market for a new forward after selling Italian international Alberto Gilardino to Genoa this week.

Despite interest in Amauri of Juventus and Catania’s Maxi Lopez, the Premier League based player is also on the shortlist of sporting director Pantaleo Corvino.

The official wants to take the forward on a temporary basis with an option to buy at the end of the campaign.

The Moroccan, 27, moved to Arsenal in the summer of 2010 on a free transfer after his contract at Bordeaux expired.
