Lopez spent the second half of the past season on loan to AC Milan and scored two goals in ten appearances in all competition for the Rossoneri.

However, with Antonio Cassano successfully recovering from heart surgery, Milan decided not to exercise a clause to sign the Argentinean on a permanent basis, and it now appears Fiorentina could be the next stop for Lopez.

"Right now there's nothing but rumours, but Fiorentina is definitely a great club and it could be a great chance for me," he told Radio Blu.

"I've visited Firenze with my family, spent a few days there and loved the city."

The 28-year-old also quashed rumours he had problems with Catania coach Vincenzo Montella, who has recently been linked to taking over the vacant managerial seat at Roma.

"It is true I didn't play as much as I would have liked when Montella was my coach at Catania, but we never had any problems," Lopez added.

"I wouldn't have any trouble working with him again, we get along very well."

Tuttosport reported on Thursday that newly-promoted Torino are also in the hunt to sign the much-travelled Argentinean, who has previously played for River Plate, Barcelona, Real Mallorca , FC Moscow and Gremio.
