Empoli defender Andrea Raggi admits he fancies a move to Fiorentina over Palermo.

"My agent is dealing with the negotiations trying to find an agreement with Empoli. I know Palermo are interested, but Florence is closer to me, although they are two big sides," he said.

"The Viola are a team for which every footballer would like to play, they have had a great campaign and are going to be in the Champions League next season.

"The rumours regarding my transfer have been around for a while now, but it is true that recently they have been talked down."
