It has been reported that Fiorentina have already held a round of talks with Chelsea for Kurt Zouma.
La Nazione says despite the Mohamed Salah fiasco, Fiorentina and Chelsea maintain a positive relationship.
Fiorentina are discussing the prospect of a January deal for Zouma with Chelsea.
The Viola want to take the defender on-loan with a permanent option included.
Zouma could make way should Chelsea be successful in signing Everton defender John Stones.
