Fiorentina eye Altidore

Fiorentina’s search for a striker has taken them across the ocean, as it’s reported they have their eye on American Jozy Altidore.

The USA international currently plies his trade for Dutch side AZ Alkmaar and already turned down several offers in the summer for around €6m.

He just turned 23 and already has a great deal of experience around Europe with Villarreal, Xerez, Hull City and Bursaspor.

The Viola have made it clear they want to sign a centre-forward in January, a role they failed to fill in the close season.

If they are making a bid for Altidore, then Fiorentina face competition from Rubin Kazan and Sporting Lisbon.
