La Nazionale are reporting that Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade is in line to secure a new contract at the Artemio Franchi.
The Viola are said to be pleased with the work of the 47-yer-old, who has played a key role in assembling a competitive squad for Coach Vincenzo Montella.
While other clubs have also reportedly been monitoring him, it is said that Prade wishes to remain in Florence and wants to sign a new two year deal.
A potential stumbling block may be that the Viola would apparently prefer to only offer him a one year extension, though talks to resolve this are expected in the next few days.
