The Viola were 13th in Serie A at the pause of play, a disappointing position for Giuseppe Iachini’s team.
Paquetà has been a big flop since his €35m arrival at the San Siro from Flamengo in 2019. Fiorentina are willing to take a gamble on the attacking midfielder though, with Milan open to selling.
De Paul is Fiorentina’s newest target, the midfielder having had a good season for Serie A rivals Udinese. The former Valencia man registered 5 goals and 2 assists for struggling Udinese this season.
Udinese’s request for the 17-cap Argentina international is €35m, but there is a belief that they could go down to €30m.
The COVID-19 situation means nothing is certain yet, but Fiorentina’s plan is to bolster their squad with South American tandem Rodrigo de Paul and Lucas Paquetà.
