Fiorentina are keeping a close eye on the situation surrounding Sandro Tonali and could try capitalise if he doesn’t join Milan permanently.
The Rossoneri pulled off a statement signing last summer when they beat competition from numerous clubs to sign Tonali from Brescia on a deal structured as follows a €10m loan fee plus a €15m option to buy and €10m in further potential bonuses.
Retaining the midfielder is one of Milan’s primary objectives and while the management consider Tonali an important talent for the future, a number of sources have claimed that Maldini is looking to secure a discount on the potential €35m fee.
According to MilanNews, Fiorentina are looking for a reinforcement in midfield to give to new head coach Gennaro Gattuso and Rocco Commisso’s club have targeted Tonali. La Viola are monitoring the situation around the player as Milan are aiming to strike a new deal with Brescia, but if the Rossoneri and the Rondinelle do not strike an agreement, Fiorentina could try to insert themselves into the negotiations.
