Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle says Luca Toni is not for sale at any price.
Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle has issued a hands-off warning to clubs who may try to lure Luca Toni away from the Artemio Franchi.
The former Palermo striker has been in scintillating form for The Viola this season, hammering 12 goals in the opening ten games of the season.
It is that outstanding run which has prompted Della Valle to warn off potential suitors of the predatory Azzurri striker.
"In Europe he is becoming known as one of the best, for sure he will soon be regarded alongside [Alberto] Gilardino and [Vincenzo] Iaquinta," he declared.
"He is worth everything to us and that's why he is not for sale
"We are on the right road, this is a group that appeals to me, from the trainer to the warehouseman."
