Reds have rivals for Dossena

Udinese plan further talks next week

Fiorentina could rival Liverpool for the signing of Andrea Dossena after Udinese confirmed a deal has not yet been agreed for the left-back.

Liverpool are in talks to sign the 26-year-old, with reports suggesting Udinese want £8million for Dossena.

The Serie A side have acknowledged discussions have taken place and are set to meet with the Reds again next week.

"We have not got an agreement yet with the English side," Udinese's sporting director Pietro Leonardi told the Italian media.

"We are negotiating, but we will talk again next week.

"For the moment, nothing is done."

Very uncertain

However, Dossena's agent Federico Pastorello says the player has yet to decide his future, with Fiorentina also rumoured to be interested.

Dossena played under Fiorentina coach Cesare Prandelli at Verona earlier in his career and Pastorello hinted at interest from the Viola.

Pastorello told the Italian media: "The future of the player is still very uncertain. He will decide everything in the coming weeks.

"Prandelli knows Dossena very well, he is aware of his strengths and weaknesses."
