Vincenzio Montella could soon acquire one of his former players from Catania. According to Di Marzio, the Viola are serious about getting their man, whom they have monitored for some time. Although there has been no direct contact between the two clubs, Fiorentina have already contacted Bergessio’s agent. Should the deal go through, Bergessio would still be playing Serie A football next season despite Catania’s relegation.
Bergessio was bright spot in Catania’s otherwise very poor season. The 29 year old forward finished the season as Catania’s top scorer with ten league goals while also contributing three assists. The Argentinian would serve as a backup to Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Gomez at Fiorentina should either of the two be injured.
