Fiorentina target Soucek

Fiorentina have set their sights on Slavia Prague midfielder Tomas Soucek, which could let Carlos Sanchez move on loan.

Soucek turns 23 next month and already has one goal in eight senior caps for the Czech Republic.

According to Sportitalia, the Viola have scouted him and decided to make a January swoop for the tall midfielder, who can also play as a centre-back when needed.

His arrival would then open the door for Carlos Sanchez to be loaned out in order to get more playing time.
