The Argentine centre-back has been in superb form for Sevilla this season and has gained plaudits from a number of European clubs, including Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Barcelona and Juventus. David Moyes has made the defender a priority signing as he seeks to rebuild his flagging squad. Fiorentina, though, have opened talks with Sevilla for Fazio and believe they could get the player for around 10m. Another added bonus for Fiorentina is that Fazio holds an Italian passport, making a potential summer move seem more likely than first expected. Fazio, 27, joined Sevilla in 2007 from Argentine side Ferro Carril Oeste and has impressed over his 149 appearances. Teammate Diego Perotti recently told El Desmarque Radio: “I see him at Barcelona. Fede is going to be the best central defender in Europe. With his height and his way of playing he will be the best – nothing is missing for him to be a starter at Barcelona.”Watch Chelsea v Stoke on Saturday and Arsenal v Everton, West Ham v Liverpool on Sunday. 24-hour Sky Sports day pass for only 9.99.
