The 31 year old’s current deal expires next June, and there has apparently been a lot of interest in him, both in Italy and England.

His agent has reportedly said: “Alessandro has another year on his contract at Fiorentina and his priority remains the Viola shirt,” Francesco Romano told Julie Italia.
“We’ll talk with the club and evaluate what to do, because there have been plenty of approaches.
“Napoli? At the moment I haven’t heard anything from them.
“I have been contacted directly by two foreign sides – West Ham United and Bayer Leverkusen have asked about the player.
“But Alessandro is a Fiorentina player and I have said that they must speak with the club.”
Gamberini was made Fiorentina’s captain last year, and I can’t help thinking that they’ll be reluctant to let him go, especially if it’s just for cover for Winston Reid or James Tomkins.

Saying that, I think at the right price, Gamberini would be a solid signing for the club, especially in a position where we have a shortage of cover. Who knows; he’s spent 8 years at Fiorentina so he may not even want a move away anyway!
What do you think? Would he strengthen our defence? What positions do we still need to boost? Let me know at @alwaysintune.
