Fiorentina are tracking Fulham star Papa Bouba Diop, according to Florence based newspaper ‘La Nazione’.

The 27 year old Senegal midfielder was one of the summer objectives of the purple outfit, however they were unable to convince the Premiership side to let go of one of their best players.

But, as reported by the Sun, Fulham are going through a cash crisis, and will need to sell one or more players in January in order to get the books in order again.

Fiorentina are ready to offer around 11 million Euros for Diop, that’s two million more than the amount Fiorentina’s biggest rivals for Diop’s signature, Arsenal, are willing to put on the table
