Fiorentina only recently avoided bankruptcy, but the culling of the squad has seen them fall into the relegation places in Serie A.
If that was not bad enough, sections of the Italian media have suggested that the Portuguese forward has approached the arbitration committee of the National Professional League in a bid to have his contract cancelled.
If confirmed it will be a major blow to Fiorentina`s hopes of avoiding the drop, and it will be something of a turnaround as Nuno Gomes had previously stated he will wait until after the World Cup before making a decision on his future.
Nuno Gomes has reportedly been joined in seeking the termination of his contract by midfielder Marco Rossi, but it is the loss of the Portuguese ace that will be the biggest worry for the troubled Viola as it would mean they could not demand a transfer fee.
