The Serie A new boys are eagerly monitoring Saviola's future at Camp Nou.
The Argentine international could be on his way out of Barcelona following the summer arrivals of Henrik Larsson and Samuel Eto'o.
Monaco have expressed an interest in Saviola and now Fiorentina could enter the race for his signature.
The Viola's hopes of landing Saviola look slim as Barca insist they have no plans to sell him, but they are closing in on the signing of Antonio Di Natale from Empoli.
Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi has revealed Fiorentina have made enquiries for the player and that a deal could be done as Di Natale is keen on a switch to Florence
"There have been contacts in which Fiorentina unveiled their interest in the player," said Corsi. "There will soon be a meeting.
"I don't make the price, but I can say that Di Natale's will is to go to the Viola as in the last days we received an offer for him, but he refused, knowing of Fiorentina's interest."
