Luca Toni issues come and get me plea
Italy striker Luca Toni claims he could move to the Barclays Premiership if Fiorentina give him permission to speak with other clubs.
The 29-year-old scored 31 goals in Serie A last year - the highest total by any player for 47 years - before helping his country win the World Cup.
He now claims there are several clubs keen to sign him, including from at least one team in England.
'I want to make the most of the opportunities I am given and win something big,' Toni said.
'I have had interest not only from Inter, but also from Spain and England.
'I want to win the league title and Champions League, but if I stay here for the next three to four years, I won't be able to.'
Fiorentina will begin next season with a 19-point deficit for their role in the match-fixing scandal, having been spared relegation to Serie B on appeal.
Toni claims Fiorentina owner Diego Della Valle has refused to meet with him to discuss his future.
'Della Valle doesn't want to hear from me, but why?' he asked. 'He doesn't want to meet me and it saddens me.
'I am not going to escape and, if they demand that I stay, I will try to give it my best for the team, but it is obvious that in the circumstances, I cannot have a good relationship with the club.'
