Fiorentina could be ready to raid Juventus once again with Adrian Mutu reported to be a target for the Viola.
The Florence club recently signed Manuele Blasi on a season-long loan from Juve and rumours suggest they will head to Turin once again for striker Mutu.
Fiorentina are planning to make a strong assault on the UEFA Champions League and a striker is seen as a key acquisition by coach Cesare Prandelli.
Juve value Mutu in the é¼10 million (£6.8 million) bracket, but this assessment could change before the summer is out.
Should Juventus be found guilty of match fixing and be relegated, it is likely that a number of players will be offloaded to cut the wage bill.
The Viola may use such a scenario to their advantage and step in with a cut-price offer for the former Chelsea striker.
