"Fiorentina haven't come to me for information," Ledesma's agent Vincenzo D'Ippolito noted. "I don't know whether the clubs have been in touch with each other – even if I don't think that has happened either.
"But Ledesma is a player who [Viola sporting director Pantaleo] Corvino has always wanted. He has great faith in him and we shouldn't forget that Corvino signed him while at Lecce."
The South American has been on the Tuscan club's wish-list for some time and an approach almost occurred in the summer of 2006.
"But now that Liverani's contract in Florence is coming to an end, it is only natural that Corvino is looking around at his options.
"Ledesma is a player who could possibly enter his thinking, but only at the end of the season. I can rule out a January move."
