After another successful season with Sassuolo, Maxime Lopez has caught the attention of several clubs both in Italy and abroad.

Tuttomercatoweb writes one possible landing spot for the Frenchman is Fiorentina, who are big admirers of the player and consider him a viable replacement to Sofyan Amrabat. The Moroccan wants a change of scenery and has his sights on a La Liga—where Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are interested in his services.

La Viola are seeking a minimum of €30 million for Amrabat and believe they could acquire Lopez for half of that given Sassuolo set a €15 million price tag on Lopez.
