Fiorentina looked desolate last season with Sinisa Mihajlovic getting sacked three months into campaign and his replacement Delio Rossi overseeing a topsy-turvy reign where he phsically attacked Adem Ljajic in front of the cameras in a match against Novara.
The club underwent wholesale changes in the summer with Rossi, Riccardo Montolivo, Alessandro Gamberini, Juan Manuel Vargas all leaving while Vincenzo Montella took charge of the club, bringin in Borja Valero, David Pizarro, Juan Cuadrado, Facundo Roncaglia and Emiliano Viviano.
Prandelli believes the 38-year-old ex-Roma striker has what it takes to restore Fiorentina to their former glory.
He told Gazzetta.it: "Montella's team are the revelation of the season.
"It's always difficult to single out one club in particular because I don't want to upset anyone, but I can certainly say that Fiorentina could go a long way."
Prandelli also hinted at a call-up for Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti, who kept Juventus at bay with his heroics throughout Saturday's goalless draw in Turin.
He added: "He's a goalkeeper that we're keeping an eye on and I can assure you that he's never been excluded from the national team.
"But we have four great keepers at the moment in the shape of (Gianluigi) Buffo, (Salvatore) Sirigu, (Morgan) De Sanctis and (Emiliano) Viviano, in no particular order.
"That's why we can't give him a chance right now, but everybody is in consideration. We are obviously keeping an eye on Marchetti."
