Fiorentina are waiting on news from Nico Gonzalez, as the top scorer might not be fit enough to play against Roma on Sunday.

It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday at 19.45 GMT.

This match represents a head-to-head for the top four and the Viola saw their extremely packed fixture list get even more draining when the Coppa Italia Round of 16 tie against Parma went to extra time and penalties on Wednesday.

Jonathan Ikone was out of that game due to flu symptoms and remains a major doubt, but Nico Gonzalez has also trained separately from the rest of the squad.

He was rested for that Coppa Italia match and it is not clear whether he’ll be passed fit to start on Sunday.

Dodo and Gaetano Castrovilli are both long-term absentees, while Riccardo Sottil and Christian Kouame are options to step in for Nico Gonzalez.

Lucas Beltran is the favourite for the centre-forward role, as M’Bala Nzola started against Parma.
