Fiorentina are seeking a Serie A rival to take new signing Nikola Gulan on-loan for the coming season.

The 18 year-old Serb has signed a five-year contract with the Viola after Partizan Belgrade accepted a £1.7 million offer last week.

Fiorentina do not have a non-EU place available to add Gulan to coach Cesare Prandelli's squad and are currently mulling over whether to send him to an Italian rival for 12 months and allow him to play another season with Partizan Belgrade.
