The agent of Internacional de Porto Alegre attacking midfielder Alex has revealed the interest of Fiorentina.

Luis Carlini confirmed: "Fiorentina are one of the teams that have asked for information on the player. We have not received any official offer from their chairman. Only when we are offered something, can I say someone is genuinely interested."

This revelation comes after reports last night that Inter officials met with Alex yesterday in a hotel in Porto Alegre to discuss a January move to Europe.
