Italian Serie Aside Fiorentina are keen on signing Ghana international Abdul Rahman Baba from Chelsea.
The talented lateral defender is on his way to recovery after a one-year lay off and has started kicking.
Baba has been linked with a loan move back to Schalke where he is expected to get back on track but a new suitor has emerged in the shape of Fiorentina who are in need of a left-back.
La Nazione have revealed that Fiorentina boss Stefano Pioli has already contacted Antonio Conte and is ready to swoop for Baba on loan if he is not in his immediate plans.
Fenerbahce, Galatasary and Aston Villa are the other clubs interested in the 23-year-old defender
