Fiorentina are entertaining the idea of swapping Gaetano D'Agostino for Parma midfielder Daniele Galloppa, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Viola are planning a complete overhaul this summer and D'Agostino looks as though he will be one of the fall guys after a disappointing first season in Florence.
Injuries have certainly hampered his progress and the last time he started a game was almost three months ago against Parma.
Fiorentina boss Sinisa Mihajlovic has apparently told the club's director of sport Pantaleo Corvino that he doesn't consider D'Agostino part of his plans.
Corvino sees Galloppa as a like-for-like replacement capable of giving Fiorentina a jump in class.
The Italy international, who can play in the middle or on the left, has been out for five months this season with a serious knee injury.
He is also co-owned by Siena, which slightly complicates the deal.
If Fiorentina fail to bring in Galloppa they will turn their attention to Standard Liege starlet Axel Witsel.
