Fiorentina have launched a bid for Bari midfielder Alessandro Gazzi.

There is competition from Atalanta and Serie B side Torino, but it's believed Sinisa Mihajlovic's side have the upper hand.

Gazzi is wanted by Fiorentina as they face losing midfielders Marco Donadel, Mario Alberto Santana and possibly Riccardo Montolivo this summer.

The Viola hope to sign Gazzi for €3 million.
