Fiorentina are reportedly in talks with Bayern Munich to bring in Italian-German left-back Diego Contento.
The 22-year-old was born in Munich from Italian parents and has dual nationality, but has repeatedly hinted he’d prefer to play his international football for the Azzurri.
He made only four appearances for Bayern this season in all competition and is valued at around €3m.
Newspaper La Nazione suggest negotiations have already been progressing for several weeks and will reach a more advanced stage in April.
