Fiorentina are eyeing Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh.

Former Liverpool chief scout Eduardo Macia is now at Fiorentina and has pushed them to move for Chamakh.

Florence sources say a swap deal is being mooted involving Adem Ljajic, who was at the centre of former coach Delio Rossi's dugout clash earlier this month.

Both Ljajic and Chamakh are currently valued at around £6m so Fiorentina hope that a swap deal can be easy to broker if Arsenal are prepared to let their striker go.
