No Viola approach for Rossi

Fiorentina have denied that they bid for Villarreal's Guiseppe Rossi this summer.

The Italian-American missed last season with injury as his team were relegated from La Liga.

“We never contacted him,” Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade said.

“He’s a really good player who would do well at any club, but he has high wages and we don’t know when he’ll be ready to play again.”
