Fiorentina to discuss Criscito bid

Fiorentina have emerged as competition for Milan and Napoli in the race to sign Genoa full-back Domenico Criscito.

The Italy international's future is the subject of great speculation even though Genoa President Enrico Preziosi says he is 99 per cent staying.

La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that Fiorentina director of sport Pantaleo Corvino has a meeting with Genoa today to discuss the prospect of signing Criscito.

The structure of the deal would take the form of an exchange involving either Felipe or Adrian Mutu.

Fiorentina patron Andrea Della Valle doesn't want Mutu to leave for another club in Italy, so that could well be a stumbling block.
