With Alessandro Matri returning to AC Milan and starting strikers Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Gomez both injury prone, Viola officials are eager to add another quality forward to their ranks.
And Tuttosport is now reporting that Fiorentina are being linked with an assault on Argentine striker Gonzalo Bergessio.
The good news is that Catania plan to cash in on their prized asset having suffered relegation to the second division.
Gonzalo Bergessio joined the Elephants from Saint Etienne, initially on loan before signing a permanent deal, and he has enjoyed several good years at Stadio Angelo Massimino.
The Argentine has managed a total of 35 goals in 109 Serie A appearances for Catania, earning quite a few admirers among Italy’s top clubs in the process.
And despite his side relegated to Serie B, chances are the 29-year-old will remain in the top flight.
