Fiorentina want to sign Aston Villa midfielder Carlos Sanchez on loan.
The Italian club are in the market for a new central midfielder and have identified a number of targets.
High on that list is Sanchez and Fiorentina are confident that the 30-year-old will be allowed to leave Villa Park.
And, according to Sky Italia, the Serie A side have approached Aston Villa about taking the 30-year-old on loan for the season.
Fiorentina are willing to stump up an initial fee for the loan, while they would also like a clause included allowing them to buy Sanchez outright next summer.
One issue maybe the Colombian’s wages, with Fiorentina hoping that Aston Villa will agree to continue paying half the player’s salary.
