Fiorentina willing to cough up for Barcelona's Thiago Motta

Barcelona are fielding more enquiries about the availability of midfielder Thiago Motta.

Fiorentina have made contact in the last 24 hours, says El Mundo Deportivo, and are willing to offer £3.5 million for the Brazilian.

Motta is inside the final year of his Barca contract and it's been suggested Fiorentina may sign him for such a fee now ahead of possibly doubling their money in 12 months with many bigger clubs rating the midfielder highly.

Real Zaragoza are also keen on Motta, whose agent, Jorge Mendes, held talks with Barca sports director Txiki Begiristain yesterday.
