Villarreal offer €12m for Gilardino

It's reported Villarreal have contacted Fiorentina with a €12m offer for hitman Alberto Gilardino.

This is not the first time the striker has been linked with a move to Spain, but the claims are intensifying.

The rumour has it that Gila's agent, Beppe Bozzo, is flying out to Spain today for negotiations with Villarreal.

The ‘Yellow Submarine' have offered €12m for the Italy international, plus a contract worth €3m per season.

Gilardino has steadfastly refused to pledge his future to Fiorentina, who have missed out on Europe for the second year running.

However, the Viola have set a price-tag of at least €18m on the hitman.
