Italian journalist Paolo Bargiggia claimed yesterday that Fiorentina are concerned about the prospect of losing the 23-year-old centre-back for nothing in 12 months time.

And as a result, they are allegedly prepared to move him on for just €10 million (£9 million) during the summer transfer window.

West Ham have been heavily linked with a move to sign the towering Serbian defender recently by Gianluca Di Marzio, Viola News and La Nazione.

Potential bargain

The 23-year-old centre-back really would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers this summer.

There is clearly some skepticism regarding the claims from Paolo Bargiggia. It does seem strange that Fiorentina would suddenly lower their demands so drastically.
