Serie A side Fiorentina are talking to Manchester City about signing defender Micah Richards before the transfer window closes this evening.

La Viola are keen to add the Englishman to their ranks and have been monitoring his situation at the Etihad Stadium.

According to Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset, talks are ongoing between Fiorentina and Manchester City over Richards.

The 26-year-old, who has slipped out of the picture at the Citizens, has just one year left on his contract with the club.


He has been consistently linked with a move to Serie A and is highly rated by Italian sides.


Meanwhile, Fiorentina are on the verge of signing Slovenian midfielder Jasmin Kurtic from Sassuolo.

The 25-year-old is set to join on loan for the season with a purchase option.
