Perugia and Napoli are also both tracking the former Sheffield Wednesday star, who is out-of contract this summer and available on a free-transfer.
Fiorentina believe they have the edge over signing Carbone, 29, as they are prepared to offer the player a cash advance to secure his services.
Aston Villa however are still hopeful they will be able to persuade Carbone to stay in England, and sign a new deal at Villa Park.
