Turkish newspaper Hürriyet is reporting that Serie A club Fiorentina have expressed interest in signing Fenerbahçe midfielder Raul Meireles on loan for the rest of the season.

The deal would reportedly include an option to sign the Portugal international to a permanent deal in the summer. Meireles is currently serving a four match ban after an altercation with a Turkish League referee last month.

It has been speculated in the media that Meireles wants to leave his Istanbul-based club. Italian champions Juventus and Inter Milan are also said to be interested. Meireles, is best known for his defensive instincts and strength in possession.

Fiorentina have been impressive in Serie A so far this campaign and currently stand in fourth position. They recently made headlines by signing Italy international Giuseppe Rossi from Spanish club Villarreal.
