Serie B promotion chasers Grosseto claim that almost every club from Serie A have enquired about their top scorer Mauricio Pinilla.
The former Hearts striker has scored a staggering 20 goals in 19 games for Grosseto, with Fiorentina and Lazio said to be leading the chase for the 26-year-old Chilean - who has enjoyed a nomadic career to date.
Having begun his career in his homeland with Universidad, he has gone on to play in six countries for nine different clubs.
Now he is enjoying by far the best season of his career to date and his form has not gone unnoticed.
"Fiorentina and Lazio? They are not the only clubs who have contacted us, almost every Serie A club wants Pinilla," Grosseto sporting director Andrea Iaconi told Tuttomercato.
"At the moment there is no team in pole position, we are evaluating bids."
Iaconi admitted there was foreign interest in him, adding: "He feels good in Italy and would like to remain, but we will not exclude a foreign bid."
