Fiorentina to splash out on big-name striker

Fiorentina are ready to spend big to sign a new centre-forward.

La Nazione says Fiorentina have Palermo striker Amauri and AC Milan's Alberto Gilardino top of their summer shopping list.

Fiorentina sports chief Pantaleo Corvino contacted Palermo counterpart Rino Foschi last week about Amauri and admitted yesterday: "We hope to convince the Della Valles to give us the budget two years in advance."
