Fiorentina consider Balotelli

Fiorentina have suggested that Mario Balotelli would interest them if he lowers his contract demands.

Balotelli is a free agent after leaving Olympique Marseille, and Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Friday that he was being considered by Fiorentina.

When asked about the Italy striker at a Press conference, Viola boss Vincenzo Montella replied: “He’s a player with important quality and great potential, some of which has been unfulfilled.

“But before saying he’s a Fiorentina player, there are so many arguments to be had.”

Fiorentina interest 'pleases' Biglia agent

Lucas Biglia’s agent said the Milan midfielder is “pleased” about Fiorentina interest, possibly as part of an exchange with Jordan Veretout.

There are growing reports from various sources, including La Gazzetta dello Sport and SportItalia, that the Viola have approached 33-year-old Biglia for a reunion with ex-Rossoneri Coach Vincenzo Montella.

It was on Montella’s advice that Milan paid €20m to purchase the Argentina international from Lazio in 2017 and his contract is due to expire next summer.

OFFICIAL: Fiorentina keep Montella

Fiorentina have confirmed that Vincenzo Montella will remain their Coach next season.

Montella only returned to Fiorentina in April, but his position already seemed to be at risk after he failed to win any of his eight games, while the Della Valle family - who brought him back - sold the club to Rocco Commisso.

However, the former Milan boss met Commisso on Friday and will now stay on. 

“I met Vincenzo this afternoon and he made an excellent impression on me,” the Italo-American told the Viola’s official website.
