Bari midfielder Emanuel Benito Rivas is in the sights of Fiorentina.

Rivas played a big role in Bari's successful return to Serie A last season.

Tuttomercatoweb says Rivas, who has played for Vitoria de Setubal and Iraklis in the past, is regarded by Fiorentina boss Sinisa Mihajlovic as the perfect piece for the 4-3-3 formation he will implement on his team.

Fiorentina, who finished 11th in Serie A, have already purchased Gaetano D'Agostino from Udinese on a co-ownership deal.
