Lopez is an Udinese option

Udinese have joined Fiorentina in displaying an interest for Catania ace Maxi Lopez, according to reports.

The Bianconeri are looking for a new striker and Lopez could be the man they eventually target.

Lopez, 27, will be sold by Catania this summer if a big enough offer is tabled for the South American.

Catania value him at around the €11m mark.

Fiorentina will only make a bid for Lopez, a former Barcelona player, if they sell Alberto Gilardino ahead of the 2011-12 campaign.
