Fiorentina director Prade admits trying to sign Brescia midfielder Tonali

Fiorentina director Daniele Prade admits they tried to sign Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali last summer.

Pradè was asked if they would revive their approach for the 19-year-old in January.

“No, we won't try again in January," he said.

"We'll be concentrating on sales rather than purchases. Besides that, why would Brescia want to sell Tonali mid-season?"

They meet on Monday and Prade added: “Brescia are a very tough opponent, because they have an excellent Coach like Eugenio Corini, a star striker like Mario Balotelli and strong midfielder in Tonali.

“It will be really difficult for us to win at the Stadio Rigamonti."
