According to Italian dailies Inter-owned goalkeeper Francesco Bardi may find himself playing for Fiorentina if the the Nerazzuri decide to offload him this winter.

The 22-year-old's agent, Vincenzo Rispoli, has expressed that there is interest in Bardi's services from teams in Italy, Spain, and England. However, Fiorentina seems to be a more likely destination for the former Livrono custodian. Inter Milan's officials are expected to meet Bardi's agent this week and discuss the player's future.

Francesco Bardi has failed to make even a single appearance for the Nerazzurri since he joined the Italian side in the summer of 2011. During that time, Bardi been seen loan spells at Livorno and Novara, and is currently out on loan to Chievo Verona, where he has made 8 appearances this season.

Inter currently possess what many would consider to be a world-class keeper in Samir Handanovic, and the current second and third-choice picks also have plenty to offer as well. With Bardi's talents supposedly not needed at San Siro, it appears that Inter Milan would be happy to offload the Italian keeper in the near future.
