Mario Alberto Santana is convincing Fiorentina that he's worth a new contract at the Stadio Franchi, reports are suggesting.
The Argentine has less than six months left on his Viola deal, but he's been one of the club's most impressive performers in recent weeks.
Santana scored the only goal in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Genoa to remind the outfit what he is capable of.
Whispers in Tuscany suggest that the club are now working on a renewal offer in a bid to keep the 29-year-old.
Santana joined Fiorentina in 2006 after spells in Italy with Palermo, Chievo and Venezia.
