Brentford are in the picture to sign Fiorentina winger Riccardo Sottil, according to a report from Italy.
The 24-year-old was out of action for more than four months last season and was restricted him to 26 appearances, managing a goal and three assists in the process. He failed to register an assist since last September, but that hasn’t put off the Bees.
According TuttoMercatoWeb, the attacker has caught the attention of clubs in England and Germany, especially the Bees and Eintracht Frankfurt.
TMW don’t specify if Thomas Frank’s side approached the Serie A club, the player’s camp or both. Sottil’s contract lasts until 2026 and the report adds he could be on his way out of Fiorentina in the next few weeks.
Brentford and the Bundesliga side aren’t the only clubs involved as a Thursday report from TMW stated Monza and Frosinone are also showing interest in Sottil.
Frank’s side have started the work to sign the attacker and whether they’ll be successful remains to be seen.
