Fiorentina are reportedly ready to come back in this summer with a higher bid for Sevilla’s in-demand striker Alvaro Negredo.
The Andalucians are seen as likely to cash in on their prized asset this summer should a high enough bid come in, in light of increased pressure from a €50m debt built up.
Estadio Deportivo believe that Serie A outfit Fiorentina may provide such an offer, to follow up on reported interest from last summer.
It is understood that La Viola were informed last summer by President Jose Maria del Nido that only a bid at Negredo’s buyout clause of €18m would be enough to trigger negotiations.
Whilst the Italians were seen as put off by the asking price then, they are allegedly ready to come back this summer, with anticipated increased transfer funds released through an expected higher League finish and possible European qualification.
Fiorentina, who signed Giuseppe Rossi from Villarreal in January, are seen as in the market for another striker to support the recovering Italian, Stevan Jovetic and an ageing Luca Toni in attack.
