Free-spending Fiorentina have moved to confirm their interest in Lyon striker Lisandro Lopez.
The Serie A side have made a number of high-profile signings in the summer transfer window, but they were unable to sign a quality centre forward, which was one of their priorities.
Viola narrowly missed out on Manchester United star Dimitar Berbatov, but they are already looking towards the January transfer window.
Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade has revealed the club are keen on Lyon star Lisandro Lopez.
“This is a great player, a modern striker. We are following (him). But, I won’t say anything else,” Prade confessed to La Nazione.
Fiorentina chiefs have gone the extra mile to keep hold of star striker Stevan Jovetic and believe Lisandro Lopez would be able to establish a fruitful partnership with the Montenegrin forward.
The Argentine is reportedly considering his options, meaning he could be open to a Serie A switch.
The 29-year-old joined Lyon in a €24 million move from Porto in August 2009 and has since bagged 49 goals in 91 Ligue 1 appearances for les Gones.
